Assuming you have the kernel source that matches version of kernel you are
running all you have to do is edit the toplevel Makefile
/usr/src/linux-xx/Makefile and remove the 'custom' from EXTRAVERSION = ...

For example:
VERSION = 2
PATCHLEVEL = 4
SUBLEVEL = 18
EXTRAVERSION = -5custom

If running 2.4.18-5 then just take the custom portion off of EXTRAVERSION.

I have the steps to create the module w/o compiling the entire kernel
somewhere if need that let me know.

Thanks,
Eric
