Sorry, that must of course read as 2.3.something not 1.3

You should not have to edit k_compat.h. If the lines don't look like those
I've quoted you should check the version of your pcmcia-source package. It
may be too old. Or another thing which just popped into my mind: 
Please go into the directory /usr/src and check if there is a symlink from
linux to kernel-source-2.2.18pre21 and if there is no link or if it points
somewhere else adjust that.

Then try if the pcmcia package compiles.

As the changes were made between 2.2.17 and 2.2.18 you might be better off
with 2.2.17 or a 2.4 kernel but I didn't try the latter with pcmcia yet.

BTW it is a bad idea that was suggested earlier to delete
/usr/include/linux. On Debian those files are used to compile application
programs only and have nothing to do with the kernel you are compiling.
