kernel bzImage and zImage problem

I have kernel 2.2.14 and when doing a "make zImage" or "make bzImage" i run into the following problem.  Skipping most of the messages, i come to this:

make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.0.35/arch/i386/lib'
make all_targets

I did a make dep, clean, and before that even a mrproper.  Does anyone know what is causing this problem, and how can i fix it?
Thanx

In my 2.2.12  source, checksum.c has been renamed to old-checksum.c, and the routines moved into checksum.S.  Perhaps you installed the new source over an old source tree?   Try deleting the source tree and untarring (or rpm-ing) a new source tar or rpm and your problems should go away.

what do you mean that you have 2.2.14 kernel while the error message shows that you are in the 2.0.35 source tree.
make sure you have /usr/src/linux point to /usr/src/linux-2.2.14 if the latter contains your 2.2.14 source files.
If not, hum...
