	I guess the first question is: are you trying to run 2.6 as host or
guest?  I don't think they've ported their kernel code to 2.6-pre (waiting
for this to be "stable" I guess) -- the kernel runs as guest (see below) but
without the appropriate module you'll lose time sync (and other things
maybe) which is pretty annoying.  I can't get any of this stuff to compile
either, I don't think you're doing anything wrong.
