The critical error message is:
/lib/modules/2.4.22 is not a directory.

Take a look and see what is wrong with /lib/modules/2.4.22. If it is a file then delete it.

"its non existant. should i create the dir?"
No.

If 2.4.22 is non existant and make install is complaining about it then I agree with quatch that you have probably done the steps in the wrong order, or skipped a step, or gone through the steps twice or more without doing a make clean.
