	Try this:
% sudo echo 'MODULE_LOC=/usr/local/src/kernel/modules' >> /etc/kernel-pkg.conf
% sudo echo 'debian := 5:501c' >> /etc/kernel-pkg.conf
% sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/src/kernel/modules
% sudo chown -R $(id -n -u) /usr/local/src/kernel/
% sudo aptitude install cryptoapi-core cryptoloop # for example

	Now, we no longer need to be root

% cd /usr/local/src/kernel/
% wget ftp://ftp.us.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.4/linux-2.4.21.tar.bz2
% tar zvvfx /usr/src/cryptoapi-core.tar.gz
% tar zvvfx /usr/src/cryptoloop.tar.gz
% tar jvvfx linux-2.4.21.tar.bz2
% mkdir 2.4.21
% cd 2.4.21
% lndir ../linux-2.4.21
% cp /boot/config-2.4.20 .config
% make-kpkg --rootcmd fakeroot --append-to-version -cryptoloop kernel_image
% fakeroot make-kpkg --append-to-version -cryptoloop modules_image


"Mars is essentially in the same orbit... Mars is somewhat the same
distance from the Sun, which is very important. We have seen pictures
where there are canals, we believe, and water. If there is water, that
means there is oxygen. If oxygen, that means we can breathe." Vice
