Well, once you get Debian installed you can have a (free!) C and C++
compiler. It's usually as easy as "./configure ; make ; make install"
but it all depends on the source.
What are the names of the .c files? It is possible that the driver
disks already include that module. If not, I could build them and we
could find out if modules built with a 2.2.19 kernel work with
2.2.18pre21 (I think that's what the install disks have).
