I run Debian 3.0r0 with Kernel 2.4.18 selfmade
>The deb box is running stable 3.0 and I did a very base install - I
didnt select any additional packages other than just the base. Am I
missing something in order for this to work?
Install the kernel-package and kernel-source 2.4.18|19 and cook your own
one with 'make-kpkg --config menuconfig config buildpackage'
