Can some one teach me how to compile order version kernel (linux-2.4.20) because i needed it to make my webcam driver to work.. there's also some problem here which make me unable to complete it step by step because kernel linux-2.4.20 need gcc version 2.95.3 but the default version for ubuntu is gcc-3.3.4 and i have tried to install the gcc -version 2.95.3 but failed with some error at the point below (when i run make with root:

make[2]: Entering directory `/home/isaac/gcc-2.95.3/gcc/ch'
gcc -c -DIN_GCC -g -O2 -I. -I.. -I. -I./.. -I./../config -I./../../include loop.c
loop.c:321:8: missing terminating " character
loop.c:322:38: missing terminating " character
make[2]: *** [loop.o] Error 1

make[1]: *** [cc1chill] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/isaac/gcc-2.95.3/gcc'
make: *** [all-gcc] Error 2

can some one help me what's really my problem is?
