Default Troubles installing the driver

I have an x86 machine.
running Debian 3.0(updated)
2.6.xx kernel
the kernel was defaulted to /lib/modules/2.6.xx/ instead of /usr/src/

Anyways. I atempted to install, and it complained of no kernel.

so I added --kernel-source-path /lib and it would say invalid directory. If i tried adding "/lib/modules" it would show this:

"Cannot find "/lib/modules/modules/2.6.xx/kernel.o"

the kernel.o file is in "/lib/modules/2.6.xx/" but I am having troubles getting it to direct to that point.

Any suggestions?

I can recompile my kernel, so if I need to just need to recompile it in the /usr/src directory I will but I would like to avoid doing this if possible.

Thanks in advance.
