Thanks. The last (make -f debian/rules build) did indeed work.
Unfortunatly, I think it was going to install it, which I definetly
didn't want. However, it stopped short in the test phase
because my 2.4.25 kernel is waay too old. (Note irony)
Also, when I ran it to see what it would say, it said built
on a 2.6.0 system. I think this means it used 2.6.0
headers. Also, I wanted to make a small change and test it.
But after the change it wouldn't run, saying build up to
date. It obviously didn't go through the source tree and
check the dates. So I re-ran the whole business. So then it
apparently unpacked the tarball instead using the source
tree. So I am back to square zero. Oh yeah, I also wanted
to run against the current kernel headers, not the ones I might
install next month.
