DeLi Linux - Broadcom driver installation problem

Hi all.
here are the exact steps i've taken. I have the broadcom driver in

cd /home/binodbdrchand/SRC/NIC
tar xvzf NIC.tar.gz
cd src
make -- gives me error right here

*Console Output*********************************************************

gcc -DMODULE -D__KERNEL__ -DDBG=0 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -06
-I/lib/modules/'uname -r'/build/include -c -o b44um.o b44um.c
cc1 : /lib/modules/ : Not a directory
make: ***[b44um.o] Error 1


I tried creating the directory, /lib/modules/, but still had no luck.

Help will be appreciated.

I've never had much luck with the Broadcom driver and have always would up using ndiswrapper for those cards.

As for the error message you posted, I suspect you don't have the kernel headers installed.
