Thanks for the reply. The headers are actually all of the headers that it looks for in the makefile. That includes the kernel headers an the ncurses headers.
However, I think I actually did make a mistake in one of the earlier compilations...
So I decided to scratch the old copy and restart. I should be back at the same point that I got stuck at in bout an hour. If the same thing happens, I'll post another reply.
BTW can I resize ext3 partitions?
