Have your 2.4.7 kernel tree under /usr/src/linux.

CC = gcc
OPTIONSCOMMON = -D__KERNEL__ -DMODULE -Wall
-Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -I/usr/src/linux/include
-Wno-trigraphs -fno-common -pipe
-mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 -march=i686 -DMODVERSIONS
OPTIONSTULIP = $(OPTIONSCOMMON)
OPTIONSPCISN = $(OPTIONSCOMMON) -DEXPORT_SYMTAB
$(CC) $(OPTIONSTULIP) -c tulip.c
$(CC) $(OPTIONSPCISN) -c pci-scan.c
rm -f *~ pci-scan.o tulip.o
