Then you repeat the same fault over and over. Did you ever successfully
compile a kernel on Linux? I mean in general. So to know whether you
know what you are doing.

If you deselect a global section like ISDN in total, it is safe to do so
without unchecking each ISDN module separately.

Do you have a sane FC2 system or did you exchange any part of the
development tools? I believe to remember that you fiddled around with
the sources of the modutils.

Not really. I did compile the 2.6 kernel more that 1 time on FC2 and had
not any of your difficulties.
