Unresolved Symbol: usb... but i deactivated it when making 'make menuconfig'

Hi everybody,

this is my first post on a mailing list ... and as you might have guessed im a newbie.
ok this is my problem:

i installed linux on an old ibm ps/2 (diskette version). works fine. (read all the mca stuff availiable and so on...) i managed to set up a nullmodem connection by using a nullmodem modem driver for windows (the direct cable connection somehow didnt work :-(), logged in with leechFTP and saved some other packages on the linux machine (kernel .... and everything needed to recompile it).

i am running kernel 2.2.19pre17. after make menuconfig i do make deb, make clean, make bzImage, make modules, make modules_install. no errors till now... after copying the kernel to /boot/<placemykernelnamehere> and installing it with 'lilo' and 'lilo -q' i reboot: the kernel boots fine till i get lots and lots of unresolved symbol errors: they start with misc and usb... now the funny thing is that i deactivated usb in menuconfig...

i also made a mrproper before make menuconf dep clean bzImage.....

please i dont need usb in any way .... are some other kernel things dependent on it???

how can i get rid of that ... maybe delete all the modules i have in /lib/modules/2.2.19pre17 ????


btw my kernel runs fine ... i didnt run into any crashes / hangs till now...
