building Kernel Modules make is failing


I am trying to compile some custom kernel modules, and I am getting some errors that I think are related to the installed packages.

This is what I am doing and the errors I get:

% make
------------- Making stats ------------------
make -C /lib/modules/ M=/users/rneal/ccm_wa/CaddyShack/Circuit_FPGA~rneal/Circuit_FPGA/circuit_accelerator/stats modules
make: *** /lib/modules/ No such file or directory. Stop.
make[1]: *** [all] Error 2
------------- Making fpga ------------------
make -C /lib/modules/ M=/users/rneal/ccm_wa/CaddyShack/Circuit_FPGA~rneal/Circuit_FPGA/circuit_accelerator/fpga modules
make: *** /lib/modules/ No such file or directory. Stop.
make[1]: *** [all] Error 2

Does anyone know what packages I need to install? here is what yum is:

kernel.x86_64 installed
kernel.x86_64 installed
kernel.x86_64 installed
kernel-debug.x86_64 installed
kernel-devel.x86_64 installed
kernel-firmware.noarch installed
kernel-headers.x86_64 installed
kerneloops.x86_64 0.12-1.fc10 installed
arm-gp2x-linux-kernel-headers.noarch fedora
kernel-debug-devel.x86_64 updates
kernel-doc.noarch updates
