    tried looking at what `uname` returns?

    I don't believe you compile them like you do a program. SCIIW, but modules
    should be compiled with -c and not linked. Try ldd'ing one of them:

    [wakko@ani:/] ldd /lib/modules/2.2.10/block/floppy.o
    not a dynamic executable

    Sorry I can't help you on #3

    Lab tests show that use of micro$oft causes cancer in lab animals
