I am trying to update my 2.4 kernel that came with slack 9.1 to the 2.6.4 kernel
here are my steps
make mrproper
make menuconfig
     [select options I want]
make

this runs for a bit and errors out with

kernel  make error no rule to make target 'net/ipv4/netfilter/ipt_ecn.o' , needed by 'net/ipv4/netfilter/built-in.o".
[net/ipv4/netfilter] Error 2
[net/ipv4] Error 2
[net] Error 2


Is there something I am not selecting that I should? Am selecting somethign that I shoudl not be?
Any help would be appreciated.

seems to me that you haven't selected IPTables ECN support under:
"Device Drivers/ Networking Support / Network packet filtering (replaces ipchains)  ---> / Network packet filtering (replaces ipchains) / IP: Netfilter Configuration"
Enabling IPTables ECN support here should do the trick ;)

I made sure to use the make bzImage command instead of just make and I still get this same error.
I have looked in google and such and cannot seem to find a solution to this problem. Since 2.6.5 is the latest stable kernel I would like to go to that but I am sure there is a option I am either not choosing or missing totally in the make menuconfig.

I must have really goofed something up on one of my tries becasue I rebooted the machine and it was not happy.
After a fres install I decided to jsut try thr kernel upgrade [2.6.5] before doing anything major.
I went in and that option was selected by default so I make no changes in the make menuconfig.
I ran make bzImage and now it is fine
