How do I setup wireless on a Fujitsu Lifebook S6120


I'm trying to set up a Fujitsu Lifebook S6120 for wireless and I am following the instructions as per http://www.mdstud.chalmers.se/~md1ul....html#WIRELESS
but have become stuck at what my /path/to/kernel-source is?

I'm running Debian Testing kernel-image 2.6.8-2-686 with gnome.
I've apt-get the items in the instructions as well as the ipw2100-source, wireless-tools, hastapd and hostap-modules-2.6.8-2-686

Can anyone please advise or give me better instructions?

The path to your kernel source is /usr/src/linux

That's what I thought, but I don't have that.

joffa@XXXX:~$ cd /usr/src/
joffa@XXXX:/usr/src$ ls -la
total 8
drwxrwsr-x 2 root src 4096 2004-03-24 23:42 .
drwxr-xr-x 12 root root 4096 2004-08-21 06:52 ..
joffa@XXXX:/usr/src$

My thought is that it is because I use a kernel-image.
Got any other suggestions?

For the sake of completeness (& others who may later search for answers)
In the end, forgetting instructions as per above link, it was really quiet simple.

- apt-get kernel-headers- 2.6.X, wireless-tools & ipw2100-source
- download & install the correct version of the ipw2100 firmware (I don't know how you tell what version you need so I tried the first version and as it failed, read dmesg and saw which one I needed so got it)
- use module-assistant to build and install the ipw2100 module
- goto networking in gnome system tools, set up the wireless connection using my dns etc
- not sure if I needed to do this but did it anyway, run pppoeconfig.

These instructions (bar getting firmware) can also be roughly used to install the sl-modem required for the internal modem. Does require network card and wireless to be deactivated to get ppp to work tho.
