Angry Can't Get 3D Acceleration w/Radeon 9800 Pro


So here's the deal. I've been trying to sort out 3D Acceleration for two weeks now and I just can't seem to get it to work. I'm running Mandrake 9.2, with kernel 2.4.22-10mdk, and XFree86 4.3.0.
My graphics card is an ATI Radeon 9800 Pro which I'm told uses the R350 Chipset.

I'm using an ASUS A7N8X-Deluxe motherboard with the nForce2 chipset.

I have an Athlon XP 2600+ (2.1Ghz) Processor and I'm using onboard sound (if that's even relevant).

Whenever I choose 3D acceleration under display options and attempt to test it Gnome 2.4 responds with a blank error, meaning that it said an error occurred, but it didn't say what it was. I've tried installing the fglrx drivers from ATI's site but it responds with the following prompt:

*** Trying to install a precompiled kernel module.
*** WARNING ***
Tailored kernel module for fglrx not present in your system.
You must go to /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod subdir
and execute './make.sh' to build a fully customed kernel module.
Afterwards go to /lib/modules/fglrx and run './make_install.sh'
in order to install the module into your kernel's module repository.
(see readme.txt for more details.)

As of now you can still run your XServer in 2D, but hardware acclerated
OpenGL will not work and 2D graphics will lack performance.

failed.
*** Error: no kernel module build environment - please consult readme.
Installed: qt3 (gcc 3.2) based control panel application
===
ATI display drivers successfully installed
please run 'fglrxconfig' now
===

When I go to /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod and run ./make.sh it give me this error:

ATI module generator V 2.0
==========================
initializing...
kernel includes at /usr/src/linux/include not found or incomplete
file: /usr/src/linux/include/linux/version.h

Below is a copy of my lspci output, and beyond that I don't know what at all I can do to get this to work. Very frustrating.

If someone responds that I need to recompile the kernel or update to the 2.6 kernel instructions on how to do that under Mandrake 9.2 would be very helpful. Thanks in advance to anyone who responds to this. If any extra information is necessary just ask and I will respond accordingly.

Install the source package for your distro.. I ran into this problem earlier today. This will allow you to try and build the driver - here is my message that I posted in the mandrake forum but maybe someone has ideas here:


Okay - i am n00b at linux and wanted to give it a crack since msFckT is taking so long with their w2k03 amd64 edition i tried mandrake's 9.2 amd64 edition and bounced around i got it installed(resizing partition/boot loaders/etc) now I ran into the problem of getting the video driver to get recognized. I d/led fglrx-glc22-4.3.0-3.2.8.i586.rpm from ati's web site and figured out how to get it installed(forced) then found I could do a make.sh w/o the source code installed locally.. installed that version 9.2.24.. Now I have hit a wall that I haven't seen in my vast web hunting. Any help w/ the below error? Thanks in advance.
