Step-by-step instructions to install your own kernel and pcmcia modules:

apt-get install pcmcia-source kernel-package kernel-source-2.2.17
cd /usr/src
tar xIvf kernel-source-2.2.17.tar.bz2
cd kernel-source-2.2.17
make xconfig  (or config or menuconfig)
make-kpkg --revision=custom.1 kernel-image
make-kpkg modules-image
cd ..
dpkg -i kernel-image-2.2.17 pcmcia-modules-2.2.17

These steps don't need anything that's not part of the Debian binary

Tot ziens,
