Installing ATI Drivers


Hello again....

Got a new problem I need some help with...

Trying to install the ATI drivers on Mandrake 10.0, I downloaded the Xfree 4.3 version as I believe that is the right version, tell me if im wrong....I run the rpm from the command line with the --force and -uH commands, and it aks me to do something to with a kernel...and asks me to run the file...file:/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/make.sh I run this file and get this error...

ATI module generator V 2.0
==========================
initializing...
Error:
kernel includes at /usr/src/linux/include do not match current kernel.
they are versioned as "2.6.0"
instead of "2.6.3-7mdk".
you might need to adjust your symlinks:
- /usr/include
- /usr/src/linux

What do I need to do to get around this?

Cheers

PS - Im a big noob so need a really easy to understand and "linux for dummies" style guide here...Cheers

Well, what happens if you create those symlinks? You don't mention whether you did it or not.
