    Yes same over here mate.
    Cant think what the trouble might be though.





    bt Module # make
    make[1]: Entering directory `/lib/modules/2.6.20-BT-PwnSauce-NOSMP/build'
    make[1]: *** No rule to make target `modules'. Stop.
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/lib/modules/2.6.20-BT-PwnSauce-NOSMP/build'
    rt61.ko failed to build!
    make: *** [module] Error 1

    Ok, the error that occurs when trying to compile RT61 from BT3 happens because there aren't any linux kernel sources found under /lib/modules/2.6.21.5/build-> /usr/src/whatever

    if you do ls -al /lib/modules/2.6.21.5/build it'll by a system link to /usr/src/something

    so you can't compile external drivers for BT3 beta

    that being said, you don't need to! RT61 works fine, especially for the wmp54g

    i tried compiling it, and then noticed that under iwconfig that 'wlan0' was listed.. i was fine
