Default Can I 'fool' the uname command??

Okay - I am attempting to compile on a shared (virtual host) machine*When I use the uname -a command, it displays the following:*Linux ps91497 3.1.9-vs2.3.2.5 #1 SMP Thu Jan 26 02:37:05 UTC 2012 x86_64 GNU/Linux*
/usr/src/linux-source-3.2 is where I downloaded the sources:*root@ps91497:/usr/src/linux-source-3.2# dpkg-query -l linux-source*
Desired=Unknown/Install/Remove/Purge/Hold*| Status=Not/Inst/Conf-files/Unpacked/halF-conf/Half-inst/trig-aWait/Trig-pend*
|/ Err?=(none)/Reinst-required (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)*||/ Name * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *Version * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Description*+++-===================================-===================================-================================================== ====================================*
ii *linux-source * * * * * * * * * * * *3.2+44~bpo60+1 * * * * * * * * * * *Linux kernel source (meta-package)*root@ps91497:/usr/src/linux-source-3.2# dpkg-query -s linux-source*
Package: linux-source*Status: install ok installed*Priority: optional*Section: kernel*Installed-Size: 32*
Maintainer: Debian Kernel Team*Architecture: all*Source: linux-latest (44~bpo60+1)*Version: 3.2+44~bpo60+1*
Depends: linux-source-3.2*Description: Linux kernel source (meta-package)**This package depends on packages containing the sources of the latest*
*Linux kernel.*So, to build this software package that I need - I need to convince the compiler that these are my kernel sources.*Any simple way to do this? I don't want to mess with environment variables, I just want to get the software built.*
Any helpful hints would be much appreciated.*
