Question Could someone help me to install a video board driver in Fedora Core 2?

Hi, I am using Fedora Core 2. I downloaded a driver for my video board (ATI Radeon 9600 PRO), but I've not been able to install it. The extension of the file is .rpm. When I try rpm -Uh --force Catalyt.rpm appears a warning message like that:

Tailored kernel module for fglrx not present in your system.
You must go to /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod subdir
and execute './' to build a fully customed kernel module.
Afterwards go to /lib/modules/fglrx and run './'
in order to install the module into your kernel's module repository.

I went to /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod subdir, but when I try to execute ./ appears a message saying Permission Denied

When I went to ATI website to try do find some information about it, it was writen that I must have the following softwares installed:

Kernel source code
Kernel header (include files)
GCC compiler
Make Utility

So I went to Add/Remove Applications and tried to find the softwares that were missing. I went into the Development group and add Development tools and Kernel Development. But I am still having the same problem.

Is it someone knows what more I have to add or something else i have to do to install that driver?
