Did you try make dep and make modules_install after doing make bzImage?
Indeed, by doing this you will overwrite your original 2.4.8-mdk kernel
modules, and the module conflicts will get lost.

1. Compile time flags to custom module.

I have a culstom module under the apache source tree.  Works fine,
installs, runs, life is good.

I like full warnings in my code.  I'm a really bad typist.  But I really
don't want to enable warnings for the whole server (I get a million of
'em).  what's the best way to get compile flags in my build?  The best I
saw would be to hack the Configure script to put more flag vars in, then
add them to my Makefile.tmpl.  That's a pain, cause I have to remember
to patch Configure every time I rebuild from scratch.  anyone with any
