Default Problem compiling Kernel


I'm a newbie concerning linux. Yesterday I tried to compile the kernel with the help of the Tutorial "How to compile a kernel - The ubuntu way" (I actually use ubuntu, im at least sure of that ^_^).
Make menuconfig worked well, although I have no idea what I can do with the options in the menu. So I just went on. I typed in make (as root of course). First I thought the kernel gets compiled without any problems, but in the end I got this error report:

"drivers/ata/sata_mv.c: In Funktion mv_slave_config:
drivers/ata/sata_mv.c:772: Error: Differentiation of a cursor of uncomplete type ( I translated that from the german error message, I hope its the same in original english )
make[3]: *** [drivers/ata/sata_mv.o] Error1
make[2]: *** [drivers/ata] Error 2
make[1]: *** [drivers] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory '/usr/src/linux-'
make: *** [debian/stamp-build-kernel] Error 2

I tried to ignore that to and wanted to create the kernels DEB packages for installing. In the end I got the exact same error report as above.

I appreciate any help.

Thanks a lot
