Thank you for all your help. I received a message from 
mhoffman at lightlink.com who suggested that the /usr/src/linux-2.4/.config 
file was missing and that I needed to copy 
/usr/src/linux-2.4/configs/<DEFANGED_appropriate config file> to the .config above.

I did that, redid the install and now everything compiles correctly and 
I was able to run the sensors executable.

Thank you very much for all you help. This rocks.
