v00d00: I dont know it says something about "bad" kernel...and that it will try to compile it but it needs the kernel-source (and that one i cant install becuz some files are needed that i dont seem to have). I had to go in to 2.4.20-18 and install the driver there (i hade 2.4.20-18.9 on my computer but i dual boot with windows so i get to choose when i start up)...but then i can only use it in the 2.4.20-18 kernel...and in 2.4.20-18.9 i cant even install it as i said...
forgot to add the log file:
