Does the readme file say anything about what to inside your linu kernel ? Perhaps any command like "make menuconfig" or something ?

It's most likely you have to go to /usr/src/linux/`uname -r`

Just copy that into ur console.. And you'll get into ur kernel map. From there just follow whatever the readme says!
