Oh, yes! This is the old weird thing! SuSE uses to install kernel sources
in /usr/src, and I blindly followed :( fixed now :).

So, finally, we have a nice Makefile suitable for 2.4 and 2.6 (>= 2.6.6) kernels:

#  Template Makefile for external module compilation

# replace <mod-name> with the prefix of the target module

Regards, thanks for your helpful advice and

have a nice weekend,
