Basically whats happening is the compile is including files
from /usr/src/linux-2.4 (the -I/usr/src/linux-2.4 tells it this).
However this is not installed by default on RH so it defaults
back to the files in /usr/include/... and problems.
These header files are in the kernel-source... rpm which
you need to install before running configure and make.
To do this, pop in CD2 (which should be mounted automatically)
and in a terminal type: su -c "rpm -i /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/kernel-source*"
