trouble installing modules (hostap)

Im having trouble installing hostap modules. I keep getting an "Invalid module format" error. I've modified the Makefile to make sure it installs the 2.6 modules but that doesn't help.
I get the following message from dmesg:
hostap_pci: version magic '2.6.5 smp preepmt 386 gcc-3.3' should be '2.6.5 SMP prepemt 386 gcc-2.95'

I'm not exacly sure what that means. My gcc version is 3.3, I tried setting the complie version to 2.95 in the makefile but it gives me an error when I run 'make' saying it not found.

BTW i am running kernel 2.6.5 from a knoppix distribution. It didn't come with the sources so I just downloaded them from the Debian site.

Any suggestions?

try installing gcc-2.95 (apt-get install gcc-2.95) and have the MakeFile use /usr/bin/gcc-2.95

gives me the same error, is there a way to tell what compiler is being used. I specified gcc-2.95 in the Makefile but either its a different problem or something is going wrong.
