modules. compilation stops abruptly with error at compiling  'lp.o' . 
Kernel compiles smoothly to give bzImage.

1.goto /usr/src/linux-2.4/
2.do "make menuconfig"
3.after ( make dep , make bzImage ) do a "make modules" you get an error

You missed a few steps...
1) cd /usr/src/linux-2.4
2) make mrproper
3) make menuconfig
   (and load the config you want from configs/ or make your own entirely)
3) make dep
4) make bzImage
5) make modules

That should work. Please reopen this bug if this doesn't work for you.
(it certainly does for me)
