compiling an old kernel

As I explained in another message I am getting SCSI
errors when writing a CD; I have tried to use
this CD writer under windows: it works; so I suppose
it may be a driver problem (I use a 2.2.13 kernel).

So I am trying to compile an old kernel (2.0.38)
but with there are problems with egcs.
I have applied the patch at
but I still get errors:

In file included from init/main.c:46:
/usr/src/kernel-source-2.0.38/include/asm/bugs.h: In function `check_k6_bug':
/usr/src/kernel-source-2.0.38/include/asm/string.h:118: Invalid `asm' statement:
/usr/src/kernel-source-2.0.38/include/asm/string.h:118: fixed or forbidden register 4 (si) was spilled for class SIREG.

(a number of times)

Has somebody successfully compiled a 2.0 kernel with egcs
or is it necessary to reinstall gcc2.7?
