If you will take some advise from a 'newbe' I suggest that you use the
new method - I have done a kernel compile quite a few times with no
problems using it.

The only time I had problems with compiling was when I got the config
file wrong. I did find that after a failed compile I needed to clear out
the old obj libraries before trying again.
