Kernel Compilation

i am using FC6, i want to compile kernel, i compiled kernel in redhat 9. i was simple,

in fc6.

# cd /usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6-i586
# make menuconfig
# make bzImage

CHK include/linux/version.h
CHK include/linux/utsrelease.h
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `init/main.o', needed by `init/built-in.o'. Stop.
make: *** [init] Error 2

so dowloaded from ftp.kernel.org linux-2.6.8.tar.gz
#mv linux-2.6.8.tar.gz /usr/src/
# tar xzvf linux-2.6.8.tar.gz
#cd linux-2.6.8
#make menuconfig

HOSTCC scripts/basic/fixdep

HOSTCC scripts/basic/docproc
SHIPPED scripts/kconfig/zconf.tab.h
HOSTCC scripts/kconfig/conf.o
HOSTCC scripts/kconfig/mconf.o

The command sequence for kernel compilation has changed from Linux 2.4 used in RHL9. Use plain "make" instead of "make bzImage". Read the section "Preparing for Kernel Development" from the Release Notes for instructions for building the Fedora kernel.
