Well currently I am lost as crap. I just built 2.6.1 or rather built it a few days ago and made 0 progress. 2.4.19 allowed for my Xircom ethernet cardbus to work and be detected. Now, well it is giving all these unresolved symbols, which of course can't be found anywhere on google. I'll give you a few of them:

xirc2ps_cs: disagrees about version of symbol per_cpu__softnet_data
xirc2ps_cs: unknown symbol per_cpu__softnet_data

there is a whole list of those....I have compiled and recompile my kernel with different features atleast 20 times now and I get jack. I would hate to jump back to a older kernel, but it looks as if I may have to :'( Any ideas?
