The problem that you're having is because the debian standard kernels
already have had certain patches applied to them; therefore, the standard
kernel patches (which are for the standard 2.0.30 kernel tree) won't
necessarily work.  Just go and download the full 2.0.32 tarball; it
doesn't take _too_ long (and I say this even with my 14.4 modem).  You can
then use the kernel-package package to do the debian-specific stuff.
