Angry Modem Driver/autoconf.h problems


OK, I'm a complete Linux newbie (1 day). I am using Mandrake 9, and most of it works fine, but I can't get my modem to work. I emailed Tech-Support to ask if they had Linux Drivers (they replied in 20 minutes, excellent, and my modem is waaaay out of warrenty). I downloaded the drivers from the intel site (the driver was Intel-v92ham-451, by the way). I followed the instuctions in the readme (make clean, make ham, make install). Make clean works fine, but when I get to make ham, it says:

Module precompile check
Current running kernel is: 2.4.19-16mdk
/lib/modules... autoconf.h does not exist
please install kernel source
make: *** [check] Error 1

Yes, I checked and I do have the Kernel source, kernel source headers etc. installed, but I still get the sae message - does any have ANY ideas at all?

Please look into the Makefile and find the error message you get, then post part of the file before the message, 10 lines or something. It performs a test and it fails. The code would help others to help you (to know what really fails).

OK, looking through the makefile it is supposed to copy a file vmlinuz.autoconf.h from /boot

But that file isn't there? Is also needs to copy a file called vmlinuz.version.h - any ideas?

I've never seen such files. Could you copy the file? Or copy a link to the driver?
