Default Compiling kernel for FC6 fills up disk space

I have installed Fedora Core 6 and need to compile kernel to add in acpi toshiba support. I followed http://www.howtoforge.com/kernel_compilation_fedora
and i get an error after running make rpm for about 15 minutes relating no more space available on disk. I checked the disk space and the entire process from start to the make rpm filled up 1900mb of my free disk space, how can i get around this issue? didnt think it would use that much space.

My machine details:
Toshiba A100 Notebook
1.83 Core Duo
512RAM

Kernel source being used - kernel-2.6.18-1.2869.fc6.src.rpm

Thanks in advance.

Can you try
Code:
modprobe ieee80211
modprobe toshiba_acpi
instead?
