Kernel headers?

I have to install drivers for my Eathernet so I ran the install script and got
[root@localhost ~]# cd Desktop/DriverInstall;./

Installation script for sk98lin driver.
Version 2.01 (20040511)
(C)Copyright 2003-2004 Marvell(R).
Add to your trouble-report the logfile install.log
which is located in the  DriverInstall directory.

1) user installation    3) generate patch
2) expert installation  4) exit
Choose your favorite installation method: 1

Please read this carfully!

This script will automatically compile and load the sk98lin
driver on your host system. Before performing both compilation
and loading, it is necessary to shutdown any device using the
sk98lin kernel module and to unload the old sk98lin kernel
module. This script will do this automatically per default.
If you want to shutdown and unload the old sk98lin kernel module
manually, run the script in the EXPERT mode.

Please plug a card into your machine. Without a card we aren't
able to check the full driver functionality.
