Install the pcmcia-source package. Then, go to /usr/src and 'tar xvzf
pcmcia-cs.tar.gz'. Go into your kernel source directory and run
'make-kpkg -rev k6.1 modules_image'.
Btw, this is not an error you've seen before, there's just nothing to do
because you haven't unpacked any sources into the /usr/src/modules
