If you *really* want to use KLIPS, you will need to go back a 2.4 kernel for
now. We are working hard to get the last issues fixed to make it work on 2.6,
but we're not there yet.
If you're adventurous, you can try:

KERNELSRC=/usr/src/linux-2.6.whatever make module26 m26install

But you better be using cvs HEAD, and not a release.
