Wow thanks for the shitty help asshole. Obviously since I don't know how to check to see if my kernel source paths or the contents of my wireless.h file are correct, I was requesting help in that arena. But since you're not capable of anything more than regurgitating error messages with cool little bold highlights and snooty-ass comments, then I'll ask a more intelligent help source. Thanks for wasting my time and yours.
