Wireless network cards may require modules that do not
come with the Linux source code. YMMV.

Just to clarify, to build modules for the BL3.40 kernel, which
version of full kernel source do we need to use? 2.2.16 or

What about compiling something like Busybox or modutils?
Are specific headers needed for kernel-specific programs?

I could not compile 2.0.40 with gcc 2.95.3. And I read that
Xvesa does not work with linux 2.0, anyway. So 2.2.26 is
probably the most stable (and therefore best) kernel to use
