I don't see any problem with asking that kind of question in debian-women,
even though it's more developer-women-oriented than user-oriented. You can
post freely there, there will be no problem. Why did you chicken out from

I don't really understand the question. You're probably referring to:
./configure && make && make install ?
Or are you asking for help on how to create a Debian package?
There's nothing embarrassing about it :)
It seems that there are some fuse-related tools in Debian. Try "apt-cache
search fuse" and you'll find some:
fuse-source - Filesystem in USErspace (source for kernel module)
fuse-utils - Filesystem in USErspace (utilities)
libfuse-dev - Filesystem in USErspace (development files)
libfuse2 - Filesystem in USErspace library
sshfs - filesystem client based on SSH File Transfer Protocol
I have no clue on how fuse works, so I cannot help you in this, sorry. It
seems you just have to install a module, not recompile the kernel.
