I keep having the following problem with Linux.

Every time i try to upgrade the kernel i keep receiving the following
message during make zImage (i'm stuck in the 2.0.27 (infomagic's CD)).

make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.0.27/arch/i386/math-emu'

I have a Cyrix processor (6x86 P-150) if it means anything (i've tried
the cyrix patches from with no results)
I'd appreciate any help.
Thanks in advance.
