So what are you saying, that your kernel is older than 2.6.25?
Glibc is configured with --enable-kernel=2.6.25 so if you try to use it
(eg, when configuring the next package, Binutils) with an older kernel
it won't work and you'll get an error message like the one you posted.
The obvious solution is to get a newer kernel but you could also try
configuring glibc with --enable-kernel=$(uname -r) but it may not work
(I can't remember why).
So upgrade your kernel before you start the book.
