I guess you are using Debian version 3.1, which has a choice of kernel
2.4.27 or 2.6.8...

This driver is included in kernel 2.6.8 as far as I can tell, check if
you are running this version ( cat /proc/version ).

If you are not running kernel 2.6.8 it should be fairly easy to
install, assuming you are on Intel architecture run (as root):

apt-get install kernel-image-2.6.8-2-686
