Switching from kernel-image to linux-image can be a problem. There were
quite a few changes in that transition.

I have a vanilla kernel patched with the software suspend patch. I built
and installed it using kernel-package (make-kpkg). I couldn't make the
the generated package useful, and I usually build module package using:

  m-a -k /path/to/kernel/tree build modulename

I currently use the packages from Sid (zd1211-utils, zd1211-source and 
zd1211-firmware from non-free) tht I rebuilt from their Debian source.
See http://packages.debian.org/zd1211-source . I still have r59
installed as I'm too lazy to install an upgrade.

The debian source package also has an option to get a more up-to-date
source. I just don't remember if it worked last time I tried.
