Im attempting to install a PCTEL Modem Driver from the Console, but when I do, I get an error saying "searching for kernel includes...** error, could not find any kernel sources in usr/src, you have either not installed your kernel sources or your kernel sources are installed in anotherr place than /usr/src/, please enter your correct kernel source tree, eg /usr/src/linux:"
Does anyone know where this is on Mandrake 10?

That is referring to the kernel source, which is the actual source code for the kernel itself. Some drivers need the source code to compile itself against. It will be on your disks so you can go to the add package and look for the kernel source that matches which kernel you have installed and install it as well.
