It was suggested to me that I post my question here on this list instead 
of the one it was posted to, so here goes.

I am using Ubuntu Hoary (5.04) and am tryring to get MOL working on the 
new kernel that I just installed.  I compiled the upstream 2.6.12-rc4 
kernel and am currently using that, although now MOL won't work.  I 
remember the procedure I had to go through, (since it was only the day 
before yesterday) and that consisted of downloading all the MOL packages 
including the kernel module, and then downloading the kernel headers 
from the kernel I was running (2.6.10-5-powerpc), in order to compile 
the MOL kernel module.  I did all of that and installed it, yet MOL 
still didn't work.  I  manually copied the /usr/src/modules/mol 
directory to the /lib/modules/2.6.10-5-powerpc directory and that did 
the trick.
Now that I am using 2.6.12-rc4 though, I can't run MOL.  I would 
recompile the kernel module, but I do not know where/what files make up 
the kernel-headers, and where to put them.  I tried simply copying the 
mol directory from 2.6.10-5-powerpc to 2.6.12-rc4 but that didn't work.  
Does MOL have some kind of rc file somewhere that tells it where to look 
for the kernel module, that could be "hardwired" to the new directory, 
or the old one for that matter?
