I assume you found this message in the archives:

I don't think the 2.4.18 patch was ever updated, so you probably
can't build a 2.4.18 generic kernel unless you want to apply the
machvec and sba_iommu patches.

That's a pretty old kernel, and the generic target was just starting
to come together then.  But I assume you have a good reason for
wanting to use such an old kernel.
