[PARPORT] Trouble building and installing paride modules on Debian 1.3

I'm trying to get the paride modules to compile/install on my Debian 1.3
system in order to access my SparQ drive. I have a 2.0.33 kernel and
don't have problems installing any of the standard modules.

If I configure the Makefile to use the modversion.h file I get:

510> make all
/usr/src/linux/include/linux/modversions.h -Wall -O2 -c pf.c
In file included from pf.c:1:
linux/modules/fatfs_syms.ver: No such file or directory
/usr/src/linux/include/linux/modversions.h:8: linux/modules/ksyms.ver:
No such file or directory
linux/modules/msdosfs_syms.ver: No such file or directory
linux/modules/netsyms.ver: No such file or directory
/usr/src/linux/include/linux/modversions.h:11: linux/modules/nls.ver: No
such file or directory
/usr/src/linux/include/linux/modversions.h:12: linux/modules/ppp.ver: No
such file or directory
linux/modules/procfs_syms.ver: No such file or directory
/usr/src/linux/include/linux/modversions.h:14: linux/modules/serial.ver:
No such file or directory
/usr/src/linux/include/linux/modversions.h:15: linux/modules/slhc.ver:
No such file or directory
linux/modules/vfatfs_syms.ver: No such file or directory
make: *** [pf.o] Error 1
root@galactica /usr/src/linux/drivers/block/paride

Which this I understand because these files don't exist? But being a
VERY novice C programmer and only have done simple Makefile
modifications I think I may be missing something very simple here. Am

Since the above did not compile I tried with nn empty MFLAGS set. This
compiled just fine but when trying to install the module I get:

514> insmod paride
../paride.o: kernel-module version mismatch
        ./paride.o was compiled for kernel version 2.0.29
        while this kernel is version 2.0.33.
root@galactica /usr/src/linux/drivers/block/paride

Yet a "uname -a" proves I'm running a 2.0.33 kernel when compiling:

515> uname -a
Linux galactica 2.0.33 #2 Sat Jun 27 22:31:23 EDT 1998 i486 unknown
root@galactica /usr/src/linux/drivers/block/paride

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
