When trying to install I get following error:

checking build system type... ./config.guess: unable to 
guess system type

This script, last modified 2003-01-10, has failed to 
the operating system you are using. It is advised that you
download the most up to date version of the config scripts 


If the version you run (./config.guess) is already up to 
date, please
send the following data and any information you think 
might be
pertinent to <> in order to provide 
the needed
information to handle your system.

config.guess timestamp = 2003-01-10

uname -m = unknown
uname -r = unknown
uname -s = unknown
uname -v = unknown

/usr/bin/uname -p =
/bin/uname -X     =

hostinfo               =

/usr/bin/oslevel       =
/usr/convex/getsysinfo =

UNAME_SYSTEM  = unknown
configure: error: cannot guess build type; you must 
specify one

What's going on? System info (I get it from the /proc):
Linux version 2.4.18-8.2mdk 
( (gcc version 2.96 
20000731 (Linux-Mandrake 8.0 2.96-0.49.1mdk)) #1 Tue Jun 
25 12:24:32 MDT 2002

I'm not a Linux expert... I used a windows version before, 
but now I have to use the unix one... PLease, help. 

P.S. I have downloaded the newest config.guess. 

P.S. 2 - It's a SSH account on ISP server... maybe to 
install httrack I need a root acces? 

Thx for any help in advance
