ftape missing modversions.h compile error.

I'm trying to build the ftape drivers for my iomega parallel port ditto drive. And I get the following error.

../../include/linux/modftversions.h:10: linux/modversions.h: No such file or directory

uname -a

Linux debian 2.6.8-2-686 #1 Thu May 19 17:53:30 JST 2005 i686 GNU/Linux

Here is a page that I found with some info

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have the kernel headers installed?

If not, install them by
apt-get install kernel-headers 2.6.8-2-686
