kernel patching

I already had linux kernel linux- I untaared in
/usr/src. and sym link to linux. I downloaded patch for 13.3 and 13.3
gz files and gunzipped.
I did dry run patch. I got error.
lvghomepc:/usr/src# ln -s linux- linux
lvghomepc:/usr/src# cd linux
lvghomepc:/usr/src/linux# cp /mnt/wing/Linux/patch-2.6.13.* .
lvghomepc:/usr/src/linux# patch -p1 --dry-run < patch-
patching file Makefile
Hunk #1 FAILED at 1.
1 out of 1 hunk FAILED -- saving rejects to file Makefile.rej
patching file arch/i386/pci/common.c
Reversed (or previously applied) patch detected!  Assume -R? [n]
I have stooped here.
Why there is failure even for vanilla kernel?
What to do now?
