I believe that the reply from Detelin Batchovski will work, but I'm
wondering about your package...
I've not downloaded the kernel-source-2.4.21 deb, but your result sounds
like you have the same thing as you would get if you downloaded the
kernel-source...orig.tar.bz and patched it with the kernel-source patch.
With this, what you have is the source to create all the kernel debs
themselves.. kernel-doc.. kernel-headers (I think), and the actual
kernel-source deb that is to compile the kernel-image deb..
If you start with the original install that you have, and, in the top
directory, issue the command "debian/rules binary" then you will get the
"real" debian-source package that you can install to compile your
It's my assumption that this would be the "correct" way to do it, but I do

more quickly. I believe that your install already has a debian/ directory
and it contains the rules file that will generate the further debs, not the
