From your first post I can deduce that a secondary call to the "make" command would be in order. I had this error too a couple of times and it's nothing wrong. The driver's makefile just signals you that it wants to compile the "compatibility" version of the driver.
Do a "make uninstall", then delete the driver's source directory, unpack it again, do a double "make" and then make install.
I've just installed Lenny on my IBM T60 and I'm currently trying to get the wireless working. I was just wondering if the 2.6.21 kernel that is an update for Lenny has the required mac80211 sub system? Or do I need 2.6.22?

I also understand that there is a non-free driver available from Intel, is it easier to use this method for getting the wireless working? Does it also need the mac80211 sub system?
If a previous kernel worked for ya, then the newer one should work too (if not better). Kernel images don't have anything to do with SATA controllers in most cases, but they won't boot if you don't have the drivers that you need enabled, that's kinda obvious. A good replacement for initramfs is yaird.
You should screw around with the kernel for your own good.

Also, I know that it exists some drivers for it that support packet injection under Linux!
So i feel curious if you say that intel has a specific paying version??
