The correct build-from-source procedure is as follows:

  1) make mrproper
  2) cp configs/kernel-2.4.21-x86_64-smp.config .config
  3) make oldconfig
  4) make dep
  5) make bzImage
  6) make modules

The correct install procedure (following the above) is:

  1) make modules_install
  2) make install
