Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

It is saying that you are using the modinit-tools for a 2.6 kernel but you are building a module for a 2.4 kernel. Look in the /usr/src/linux-2.4.27-2-386/README file and it should tell you what version of modutils you need.
I can't find a readme file in there. I did find "module-init-tools" in apt and the description says:
This package contains a set of programs for loading, inserting, and
removing kernel modules for Linux (versions 2.5.48 and above). It serves
the same function that the "modutils" package serves for Linux 2.4.
Do you know how I could downgrade that to an older one, if thats what I should do?
I am having sound trouble now. I can adjust the usb audio class driver in kmix, but I still get no sound. I have tried plugging in a microphone, but I get no sound with that either. I have tryed recording sound with audacity but I can't get any sound to show up on the meter.
When someone tries to start a voice chat in Mercury with me I get this error:

I can here someone else talk in skype but I can't talk to them.
Please if anyone can help.
I am able to change permissions on it. It is set on: users can read and write.
I can't figure out how to get any sound. I've tried plugging in a mic in my sound card and I get nothing there. I've tried recording with krec but it doesn't pick up any sound. I've tried testing them with skype and that doesn't work either.
I use skype on windows to video chat but I would like to record sound on linux just in case one of these days skype does come out with a linux video version.
It's got to be something in your alsamixer is disabled. Try running alsamixer from an xterm and turn everything on and off a couple times and adjust all the levels up and down. Sounds silly but everytime I have weird sound problems it's always alsamixer and that is how I fix it.
Thanks for the advice but I just can't get it to work. When I run alsamixer I get an option for mic 1 or 2. I tried selecting mic 2 but nothing seemed to change. I ran all of the volumes up and down. There is a mic boost option but I can't figure out how to turn it on.
I tried turning off my mic on my soundcard with kmix.
The option for my usb device doesn't have a green button above it. It only has a red button below it. If that means anything.
