Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

You have whitespaces in the path - /Drivers Camara GE /. This is a Very Bad Thing (TM) in Linux/Unix world.
From the output of Make, it looks like an error on the side of the developer. I would suggest asking him about it, but I'm not totally sure. Anyways, thanks for posting the information--you're a shining example of someone who has read (or doesn't need to read) "How to report bugs effectively" (Tatham).
To clarify, whitespace itself is not so bad, you just have to quote it. The problem is that a fairly large amount of shell scripts are essentially buggy in that they don't handle whitespace and funny characters properly.
To fix it, put it in quotes:
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1381_FC3/build "M=/home/oscar/mydownloads/Drivers Camara GE /ov51x-1.65-1.12-mark" modules

Well, it wont work probably, make is often run in multiple instances and I'm not sure one can quote everything. Normally make treats whitespaces as separators, for instance 'make install clean' installs and cleans sources. This really is not a shell problem.

I've always said that if you want someone to help you have to let them help you instead of blocking their way...
I've read so many articles regarding this and seen so much topics stating "I need help" all alone, and sometimens I think to my self, Well, me too... but this is not the right place to ask for the help I need (lol)
