The problems I remember:
1. the "source" and "build" links pointed to an incorrect place. An
invalid build link is a problem.
2. If I actually changed the source to make the base supplied
linux-headers package not good enough, I found no way to generate a
complete one (linux-headers-2.6.18-6 vs linux-headers-2.6.18-6-686).
