Wireless Athero+Debian how to set up?


Hi,

I'm using toshiba tecra S1 which uses Athero wireless lan network card, and Debian. How can I setup the wlan? From informations on the net I guess madwifi is the driver for me but after I downloaded it and type

make KERNELPATH=/usr/src/kernel-source-2.6.8-2-386
(my source is in that directory)

then I see:

mkdir -p ./symbols
for i in ./ath_hal ./net80211 ath_rate/sample ./ath; do \
make -C $i || exit 1; \
done

I installed the kernel-headers and now the error message has changed:

pwd# make
