Is this module in a mainline kernel yet?  If so, then 'apt-get install
kernel-image-2.4.18-<arch>', where arch is 386, 586tsc, k7 or whatever.
Then use modconf to select the module and you should be all set.

Dunno.  If you've setup 'locate', then 'locate rtl8150' should find it
for you.  Again, you use modconf to select it.

The config file should be stored as /boot/config-2.4.18bf or similar,
but there's no point using it to build a new kernel, since the new one
would contain the exact limited set of drives you currently have
available :-)
