Compile a module in Fedora 10


Hi everybody, I am a newbie
I have just learnt Linux. And I have many problems. Please help me, thanks you very much.
The first my question: How to build a kernel module in fedora 10, 2.6.27.21-170.2.56.fc10.i686. I try to do it but error
My MakeFile:
obj-m += vlogger.c

all:
make -C /lib/modules/$(shell uname -r)/build M=$(PWD) modules

clean:
make -C /lib/modules/$(shell uname -r)/build M=$(PWD) clean
and this is result when I type 'make' command
[haopx@phamxuanhao BTL]$ make
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.27.21-170.2.56.fc10.i686/build M=/home/haopx/Desktop/BTL modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.27.21-170.2.56.fc10.i686'
scripts/Makefile.build:218: target `/home/haopx/Desktop/BTL/vlogger.c' doesn't match the target pattern
Building modules, stage 2.
MODPOST 0 modules
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.27.21-170.2.56.fc10.i686'
[haopx@phamxuanhao BTL]$
And there are files in BTL directory:
Makefile Module.markers modules.order Module.symvers vlogger.c
Where is my module .ko???
Thanks

try doing a search for that module. by doing the following
Code:
find / -name "<module name>.ko"
this will search every directory on your system for the specific .ko file. If you want to search for all just remove teh module name and replace it with an *

Thanks, it means that my Makefile is correct and my file vlogger.c was complied succefully, doesn't it?
if it is true, why not result is returned when 'find / -name vlogger.ko' finished.
