I took your advice and found all I need in the Nov. and Dec. list archives.
I compiled my first debian kernel 2.2.18 (yipee) and installed.  

Then I download the mol sources 0.9.53 (the same source which made the rpm
that, when installed, claimed I need kernel 2.4.0.)

Problem is that I ran into a build problem that i can't figure out. I searched
the archives and found no similar compile problem.   Compile fails, and I
think it has something to do with missing headers.  Here's the beginning
of the stderr output.

Entering '/usr/src/mol-0.9.53/debugger'
Entering '/usr/src/mol-0.9.53/debugger/../mon'
gcc -pipe -O2 -Wall -fomit-frame-pointer -mmultiple -I../include -c -o ppc-dis.o ppc-dis.c

In file included from ppc-dis.c:24:
../include/dis-asm.h:47: field `flavour' has incomplete type
../include/dis-asm.h:49: field `arch' has incomplete type

--end of excerpt

The error message goes on for some lines, but I think those follow from the
headers the compiler said it was missing: sysdep.h, ansidecl.h, dis-asm.h.

(dis-asm.h) comes in the include directory of the mol source, yet the makefile
doesn't seem to be able to find it.

any clues about the other files, and what going wrong here?
