I am attempting to install a wireless USB dongle, namely a Belkin f5d7050 v4000 which has the zydas chipset (before they were aquired by Atheros). Drivers for the chipset exist, namely the zd1211b and zd1211rw.
My problem however is compiling the drivers on the sheeva, as the headers are not inlcuded by default. I reflashed my plug with the installer v1, and then upgraded to kernel v. 188.8.131.52 as per the instructions on the wiki, and all is well. Whoever manages sheeva.with-linux also kindly provides the headers for this distro, but they are given in a tar.gz ball, which when untared gives a usr directory.
Now at the risk of exposing my n00bishess, I dont know how to make the sheeva understand that these are its headers. Ive previously installed headers, but via apt-get and .deb files.
Ive tried creating symbolic links to point from /lib/modules/184.108.40.206/build to /usr/include as well as /usr/include/linux (I figured this is it as the dirs contain files ending in .h) but I get
root@ubuntu:~# cd zd1211-driver-r85

make: Leaving directory `/usr/include/linux'

this is the same when build points to include.
I know im probably doing something exceedingly stupid and n00bish, but I dont have the required knowledge in Linux yet to figure out what. I would apreciate any help/insights on the matter
