"module-assistant is a tool for building Debian kernel
modules from source, without having to rebuild the whole kernel. It
fetches module-source packages that have been prepared for the
Debian distribution via apt and produces .deb packages. This
tutorial shows how to use module-assistant in command-line mode and
in interactive mode.
"I do not issue any guarantee that this will work for you!
"1 Preliminary Note
"In this tutorial I will demonstrate how to build the
ndiswrapper kernel module for Debian Lenny. The procedure is the
same for any other kernel module that module-assistant knows.
"2 Using Module-Assistant In Command-Line Mode
