That'll teach me to jump in in the middle of a thread without reading the 
start ;-) Sorry...

There wasn't much in my notes on this I'm afraid. The command below is what I 
used to make kernel binary and fuse module debs. It sounds like you already 
know this though.
make-kpkg --initrd --added-modules fuse --append-to-version  20050908-1 
--revision=3:teleport.1.4 binary modules

It seems I considered debianising one of the atmel usb wlan drivers like this, 
using the fuse instance as a guide, but was pulled off onto something else 
before actually doing it. Must get my memory seen to...
