The kernel source code from kernel-source-2.4.1-0.1.9.i386.rpm doesn't seem
to have a working xconfig interface.  "make menuconfig" works, but "make
xconfig" returns an error:
[root@Zeke linux]# make xconfig
rm -f include/asm
( cd include ; ln -sf asm-i386 asm)
make -C scripts kconfig.tk
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.1/scripts'
cat header.tk >> ./kconfig.tk
./tkparse < ../arch/i386/config.in >> kconfig.tk
net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_vs/Config.in: 9: incorrect argument
make[1]: *** [kconfig.tk] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.1/scripts'
make: *** [xconfig] Error 2
[root@Zeke linux]# 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install kernel-source-2.4.1-0.1.9.i386.rpm
2.  cd /usr/src/linux
3.  make xconfig
	

Actual Results:  An error occurd, a transcript of which follows:
[root@Zeke linux]# make xconfig
rm -f include/asm
( cd include ; ln -sf asm-i386 asm)
make -C scripts kconfig.tk
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.1/scripts'
cat header.tk >> ./kconfig.tk
./tkparse < ../arch/i386/config.in >> kconfig.tk
net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_vs/Config.in: 9: incorrect argument
make[1]: *** [kconfig.tk] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.1/scripts'
make: *** [xconfig] Error 2
[root@Zeke linux]# 

Expected Results:  The X-based kernel configuration interface should've
come up.

[root@Zeke linux]# make xconfig
rm -f include/asm
( cd include ; ln -sf asm-i386 asm)
make -C scripts kconfig.tk
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.1/scripts'
cat header.tk >> ./kconfig.tk
./tkparse < ../arch/i386/config.in >> kconfig.tk
net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_vs/Config.in: 9: incorrect argument
make[1]: *** [kconfig.tk] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.1/scripts'
make: *** [xconfig] Error 2
[root@Zeke linux]#

Known problem... this is fixed in more recent kernels as available in rawhide.
