[Problems compiling a driver for linux 2.4 against linux 2.6]

The main issue is, that the 2.6 kernel-series has a completely different
driver API then 2.4 series. More than that, linux 2.6.0 was
released in December 2003, which is now nearly 6 years in the past, and
in this time, the driver API has been changed more than one time. To
solve your problem, you need a documentation about the driver-API (in
lenny, it's 2.6.26) and you need to figure out how to rewrite
your driver. I assume you know the lkml.
Good luck!
