errors compiling 3c59x.o module for qube2
I've successfully loaded debian onto my Qube2 thanks to Paul Martin's howto. Now I'm stuck trying to compile the 3c59x.o module for 3com905b pci nic. After installing the 2.4.18 kernel source and headers, I followed instructions at http://scyld.com/expert/modules.html and this is the errors I'm getting when trying to compile.
qube2:/usr/src/modules# make KERNVER=`uname -r` 3c59x.o
cc -DMODULE -D__KERNEL__ -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O6 -I/usr/src/linux/include -DMODVERSIONS -c -o 3c59x.o 3c59x.c

Using the onboard eth0 NIC and serial port simultaneously still hangs the system and I also find that the onboard NIC transfers are quite slow for a 100mbit interface, thus my interest in getting the 3com working. I'm fairly versed with linux at the command line (have RedHat on my laptop) but compiling kernels and modules is new to me. Any suggestions what I'm missing?
