    That is just the first step, and is not enough:

      rpm -Uhv kernel-syms-2.6.8-24.i586.rpm
      cd /usr/src/linux
      cp ../linux-obj/i386/default/.config .
      cp ../linux-obj/i386/default/Module.symvers .
      make prepare

    I just did this, and the compilation went without any error.
