Pristine 2.2.19 kernel compile

Well, it works! I got the Pristine 2.2.19 kernel from kernel.org to compile, 
and modules, and everthing! Of course, it's not all good: the tdfx module has 
symbol problems, even though it's present in the config and seems to compile 
and be installed in /lib/modules/2.2.19/misc/tdfx.o...which is naturally 
important because I've got a Voodoo3 card, so, no X with this kernel. 

I then attempted the 2.2.19 kernel from debian via apt-get, but no dice 
there, either. Should there be more instructions listed about what to do once 
I apt-get install 2.2.19? I remember seeing something about build 
instructions, but I'm curious on two fronts: first, I want to know what I 
need to do to build a working kernel (that I can use to run X with my Voodoo3 
;-) from the debian sources. Actually, I was able to compile the kernel and 
boot from it, but I get tons of "unresolved symbol" errors...Second, I'm 
curious because if there are special instructions, there should be a dialog 
of some kind explaining what they are when the kernel-sources are installed. 

Thanks for any input and help.
