Need help with "make"


I am attempting to run make ti be able to install the RT73 driver for a Linksys USB54GC USB wireless adapter. I am executing make from the proper /modules directory as instructed. Please not the error I receive:

make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.18-128.1.6.el5/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
rt73.ko failed to build!

I cd down the path and find that the /lib/modules/2.6.18-128.1.6.el5/ includes a sym link: source -> build

I'm not sure what to do to correct the issue. Any/all help is greatly appreciated!

What about build itself? Is it a broken sym link? If so, you'll need to install the kernel source package for your distro. I'd also install the kernel headers (or kernel devel, as it may be called) package.
