I have removed the full kernel source and installed the headers instead (though I doubt that this was necessary). The package did not create the link /lib/modules/2.6.8-2-386/build that the r74 make is missing. Thus, I recreated it myself.

Since I would like to stay with stable Sarge, I will not upgrade my kernel. Which version of zd1211 do you suggest? With kernel headers in place, is there anything I should do besides make after downloading and untaring of the version that you will suggest?
