ATI Mobility Radeon 7500 and FC6

Hi all

I am trying to get ATI Radeon 7500 card to work on FC6, but no luck.
i followed this link :

and i get this error :
i dont understand what this error mean and how to fix it. how do i recreate a symlink ?

ATI module generator V 2.0
kernel includes at /lib/modules/2.6.20-1.2948.fc6/build/include do not match current kernel.
they are versioned as "2.6.20-1.2948.fc6-i686"
instead of "2.6.20-1.2948.fc6".
you might need to adjust your symlinks:
- /usr/include
- /usr/src/linux
error: Bad exit status from /tmp/ATI-fglrx-8.28.8-1-3067-root/tmp/rpm-tmp.33752 (%install)

RPM build errors:
Bad exit status from /tmp/ATI-fglrx-8.28.8-1-3067-root/tmp/rpm-tmp.33752 (%install)
Removing temporary directory: fglrx-install
[root@localhost ATI7500]#

I think your problem is that the Mobility 7500 is too old a card to work with any of ATI's drivers. However the radeon driver that comes with X does a decent job. I've got the same card in my laptop, and I've got my xorg.conf file posted on my website in the laptop section (see my sig for the link to the site).
