"make sure you have the kernel source downloaded and installed correctly"

how do i do that?

The kernel sources *should* be on your install CDs, although I don't know if it was installed by default. Look through your packages (or check the package manager - I'm not too familiar with MDK, sorry) for something along the lines of 'kernel-source[some extra stuff here].rpm.

ya, I used to have Mandrake 10.0, this is what I did to get the sources (if there not already there)
# urpmi kernel-sources

If you want to see if you have first, before you needlessly install a kernel, go to /usr/src/ in a file manager, or whatever, and see if you see linux-2.6.something. If ther is then you have the kernel sources installed already.
