Installing FUSE on Debian 3.1r2 - module goes to wrong /lib/modules subdirectory


I have a fresh install of Debian 3.1r2, and I am trying to install fuse, but it ends up in the wrong modules library. I am sure it is a simple error, but can anyone tell me where I am going astray? Here's what I do as root

Install Debian 3.1r2
# Install kernel source for fuse construction.
apt-get install kernel-headers-2.6.8-2 kernel-source-2.6.8 sudo
cd /usr/src
bunzip2 kernel-source-2.6.8.tar.bz2
tar xvf kernel-source-2.6.8.tar
cd kernel-source-2.6.8
cp /boot/config-2.6.8-2-386 .config
make prepare
# Now make fuse
cd ~
mkdir build
cd build
wget http://umn.dl.sourceforge.net/source...e-2.5.3.tar.gz
tar -zxvf fuse-2.5.3.tar.gz
cd fuse-2.5.3
./configure --with-kernel=/usr/src/kernel-source-2.6.8
make
make install
depmod -v
modprobe fuse

The last statement fails because fuse isn't found. Fuse isn't found because it is installed in /lib/modules/2.6.8 instead of /lib/modules/2.6.8-2-368. So how to I get fuse installed to the right module library? I've tried renaming kernel-source-2.6.8 to kernel-sources-2.6.8-2-386, and changing fuse's configure parameter, but, as I expected, it doesn't help. The module still ends up under 2.6.8. Any suggestions?

Well, it appears that making a symbolic link in /lib/modules will get it to work, but it seems like a hack.

ln -s /lib/modules/2.6.8-2.386 /lib/modules/2.6.8

Or is this the right way to do it?
