I am getting errors when I compile the kernel.
The errors are in chechsum.S  in the definition of macros SRC and DST 
around line #'s 232 & 238

This means you are not using kgcc to compile the kernel. You need to install
the kgcc package and make sure you use "kgcc" as the compiler that gets

"export CC=kgcc" often does the trick, if not, edit the Makefile of the kernel
around line 24 to make it say "CC = kgcc".
