Thanks a lot. I made wrong assumptions due to lack of understanding of issues involved. 

I'm still working on it. At least I got the new drivers to compile. As it turned out I
didn't have /usr/src/linux/. I'm a little puzzled by the fact that compiling the drivers
with the header files provided by kernel-source-2.2.17.deb AND compiling them with the
headers found in /usr/include produces the same result in 'insmod tulip', which leads me
to believe that the contents of /usr/include don't correspond to my running kernel. Is
that possible? Well, I'm getting unresolved symbols with insmod, so I'll have to check the
version of the kernel tonight and will probably recompile it, if only for practice.
Reinstalling Debian with dselect is not that much fun after all.
