How to install Ati drivers on Mandrake 9.1 !?! PLS HELP


Hi

I have a big problem with this card(radeon 9100). I cant get opengl working. Please help me. I Want to install Ati drivers on Mandrake 9.1



I did this:

rpm -i --force fglrx-glc22-4.3.0-3.2.5.i586.rpm

after that i showed me:

*** 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.


-------------------------------

!?!!? What is this ?
i try to go to /lib/modules/fglrx/biuld_mod and execute ./make.sh but it showed me :


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



!?!!?
--------------

Please help me, Please tell me how to do it STEP BY STEP!. I'm a newbie. PLEASE HELP ME BUT TELL ME WHAT SHOULD I DO AND HOW STEP BY STEP PLS!

Actualy i do know what the first part of it is though

make sure that you have the package kernel_source installed that is a biggie I made sure that it was installed and then did that then did the first step and it had the same error thought soo i would try installing the source and then if you have the same error again then you could post that you are still getting that error if i get information about i will make sure that i post it here if i find your post again
