OK I've downloaded linux-2.4.22.tar.bz2 and unpacked it into /usr/src/
with 'tar -xjvf linux-2.4.22.tar/bz2' and have a kernel directory.

Downloaded patch-2.4.22-vs1.00.diff.gz and copied it into the
/usr/src/linux-2.4.22 directory and have an error running 'patch'
[root_at_localhost linux-2.4.22]# patch -p0 < patch-2.4.22-vs1.00.diff.gz
can't find file to patch at input line 4
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
The text leading up to this was:
|diff -NurpP --minimal linux-2.4.22/Makefile linux-2.4.22-vs1.00/Makefile
|--- linux-2.4.22/Makefile Mon Aug 25 13:44:44 2003
|+++ linux-2.4.22-vs1.00/Makefile Sat Nov 1 11:13:11 2003
File to patch:

Can someone hit me with the 'clue' stick?
