I don't know about the drivers themselves, but for any kernel driver you 
want to compile you will need the kernel headers and source. They are
available as an rpm from Planet CCRMA. Just do a:

  apt-get install kernel-source-2.4.19-1.ll

That will install the sources and headers that match the new kernel. 

If you need the configuration with which it was compiled you can find it 
in /usr/src/linux-2.4.19-1.ll/configs, copy the kernel-2.4.19-i686.config
file to .config and you should be fine.
