First, make sure that you have installed the kernel header files matching
your kernel image (i.e. install kernel-headers-2.4.8-bf2.4, you can find
the package here: http://packages.debian.org/stable/devel/). 

If it still won't work, make a symlink 
/usr/src/linux > /usr/src/kernel-headers-2.4.18bf2.4.
