make modules_install: pre-packaged kernels ???



I have installed kernel-image-2.4.21-3-686 , and it boots, &c.

I have also installed these:

   kernel-headers-2.4.21-3-686
   kernel-pcmcia-modules-2.4.21-3-686

Life is good, except, I also need linux-wlan-ng-modules, and there is no
#3, but there is this, which I've installed:

   linux-wlan-ng-modules-2.4.21-2-686

Unfortunately, as I installed all of these in one big apt-get install
process, and this setup will *NOT* utilize prism2_cs.o .

First, it was due to:

   module /lib/modules/2.4.21-3-686/pcmcia/prism2_cs.o not available

So, clever me, I symlinked like this:

# ls -al /lib/modules/2.4.21-3-686/
total 392
drwxr-xr-x    5 root     root         4096 Jul 25 22:00 .

   /lib/modules/2.4.21-2-686/pcmcia/prism2_cs.o

Now, I get this:

How can I do all of this, including kernel-image-2.4.21-3-686 and
linux-wlan-ng-modules-2.4.21 ???

Or, need I move everything back to kernel-image-2.4.21-2-686 ???

What do you think?
