I'm guessing you really meant something like this:

"I'm running the Debian pre-compiled kernel 2.2.19, and now I'm trying to
add alsa. I installed kernel-source-2.2.19, uncompressed the source tarball
and made a /usr/src/linux symlink to the source tree."

>From there, you need to copy the config for the kernel you're running:

bash:~/usr/src/linux$ cp /boot/config-2.2.19-<whatever> .config

Then you need to run "make oldconfig" and "make dep". Then modversions.h
will be found, and you'll live happily ever after.

(Well, maybe not the last) :)
