Question how to use the make command


I am trying to install wireless drivers. i am not sure how to answer the questions? This is the read out i get when i run the make command on my computer.

[ckelly@RedHat atmelwlandriver]$ make config
Build all [y/N] : y
Set extra module version information [y/N] : y
which: no modprobe in (/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/home/ckelly/bin)
Kernel Version Running 2.4.20-8
Found Kernel Source Directory ()
grep: /.config: No such file or directory
scripts/setup.sh: line 116: [: -eq: unary operator expected
root dir of external pcmcia:
pcmcia include dir /include does not exist.
run again with the proper directory
Finished. Now run make clean, all, install
[ckelly@RedHat atmelwlandriver]$
[ckelly@RedHat atmelwlandriver]$

There are three questions i need to answer. 1) I do want to build all right? 2) set extra module version information is a yes right? 3) The root dir of external pcmcia: i have no clue.

any help would be great
Thanks

Well i tried that and this is what i got

[ckelly@RedHat atmelwlandriver]$ make config
Build all [y/N] : y
Set extra module version information [y/N] : y
which: no modprobe in (/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/home/ckelly/bin)
Kernel Version Running 2.4.20-8
Found Kernel Source Directory ()
grep: /.config: No such file or directory
scripts/setup.sh: line 116: [: -eq: unary operator expected
root dir of external pcmcia: /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/modules.pcimap
pcmcia include dir /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/modules.pcimap/include does not exist.
run again with the proper directory
Finished. Now run make clean, all, install
[ckelly@RedHat atmelwlandriver]$

I tried it both ways /lob/modules/2.4.20-8/pcimap

also if i go into that dir will i see some thing that says pcmcia?
