You need to make sure you get the .config file that goes with the
kernel, which isn't going to be the default one in the kernel-source
package. Try copying /boot/config-2.4.18-686 to .config, and then
running 'make-kpkg modules-image' again.
(The Righter Way to do this, from what I can tell, is even more of a
pain; you can get the kernel-image-$KVERS-i386 source package, which
build-depends on the kernel-source-$KVERS binary package; you need to
emulate its behavior to build custom modules, though. Ick. You can
also do things with kernel-build-* packages, but only in unstable, and
again not terribly cleanly.)
