Unhappy Kernel make bzImage error "undefined reference" w/ Prism2.5 USB driver under 2.6

Hi there,

I'm a newbie to linux, and I downloaded the Mandrake 10.0 ISOs.

I thought I had figured out how to get my Linksys WUSB11 v3.0 to work. Unlike most of the other WUSB11s, the v3.0 runs on a prism driver, not the atmel driver. This driver comes with Mandrake Linux 10, but the prism25_usb.c (or whatever the file is called, I'm in my win2k boot right now) doesn't specify v3.0's USB-ID yet.

So, I downloaded the 2.6.3-7 source code, added the necessary line into prism25_usb.c, ran
bash#make xconfig
Selected what I thought was correct. There were prism drivers in two locations, but the usb one was only under "3rdparty". I said Y to that one, and on my first try, N to the others, M on the second try.

I tried
bash#make depends
but that got me:

make: *** No rule to make target 'depends'. Stop.

I read in someone's post on this site that you don't do make depends on kernel 2.6.x, so I went on:

bash#make bzImage

going along for quite some time (an hour or two? I wasn't looking at my watch, and I don't know how long it was between it ended and I checked the screen).

Here is the error, with some of the last lines before it so you know where it was in the process:

Sorry it's such a long post, but I thought this might help identify the problem more.

Does anybody know how I can solve this problem?
