Linux Newbie unable to install wifi - netgear 511t


Hi
I have just downloaded debain linux and trying to install wifi card. Have also downloaded madwifi but when I run make command in the root terminal I get following error:

Makefile.inc:94: *** KERNELPATH must be defined. Stop.

Please advise..
Also if I run isconfig I am unable to see the wireless card.

Cardctl will only tell you if the card is plugged in, nothing about drivers.
Make sure you have the kernel sources installed ("apt-get install kernel-source"). If it still doesn't work try compiling via "KERNELPATH=/usr/src/linux-[look in your src directory for exact name] make".
