I've just tried that; it's a bit less comfortable for me because
(as I indicated earlier) module-assistant doesn't seem to care
about EXTRAVERSION and APPEND_TO_VERSION, so that it auto-installs
the module in the *wrong* directory.  So that it must be moved to
the correct place afterwards.

Anyway, whatever, when loaded, and after "startx", my monitor
says "No signal"...

I didn't see anybody yelling.

I didn't try that yet, as reading the ML, warned me about it.

I've been led to believe that "make-kpkg" was the debian way.
It has certainly been around longer than "m-a". There must be more
than one way to do it ;-)

Anyway, if you are willing to help solve my problem, please tell
me what more specific information you need.
