I have a 386/387 8meg ram 32meg swap space, approx 120meg free disk space.  I am trying to recompile the 2.0.30 kernel.  When I do a 'make zImage', I get a 'virtual memory exhausted'.  Any ides on how to recompile the kernal?

8MB RAM + 32MB swap should be enough to compile the kernel-
something's wrong with your system. Check the swap partition,
maybe you should run "mkswap" to recreate it.

I have several responses from USENET about slakware being broken
and using the command "free" to verify if the swap partition is
working properly.
