I have to ask, why the hell do you want the 2.0.6 kernel?  I don't think
you can do that, some things can rely on having at least the 2.4 kernel
series IIRC.

One reason may be to compile a very small kernel.  In that case, you
need to isolate all the include and library files (don't use anything
in /usr).  In any case, use the highest version at least (2.0.39, I
believed).
 
 
 

1. Problems compiling RedHat 7.2 with new kernel

I have installed Redhat 7.2 without any problems. Afterwards, I try to
install kernel 2.4.17 following these steps:

cd /usr/src
rm -f linux-2.4
gzip -cd linux-2.4.17.tar.gz | tar xfv -
mv linux linux-2.4.17
ln -s linux-2.4.17 linux
cd linux
make mrproper
make menuconfig
* I select my hardware options with (Y)
make dep
make clean
make bzImage
make modules
make modules_install
cd arch/i386/boot
* I edit the /etc/lilo.conf
/sbin/installkernel 2.4.17 bzImage /usr/src/linux/System.map
reboot

But the options that I have configured through "make menuconfig" as network
card driver don't work because they aren't loaded by the kernel during
startup. Moreover, I have noticed that the kernel options work well when
they are fixed as modules (M), but not when I select (Y) in the config. This
problem doesn't exist with RedHat 7.1.

Somebody has any idea about this problem?

Thanks ins advance,

Johnny
