Easy enough. You just need to download the source for the kernel you are trying to install it with and untar it to /usr/src. Here's how I know this.

make: *** /usr/src/linux-2.6/: No such file or directory. Stop.
Mandrake doesn't give sources to the kernels out, but all you have to do is pay a visit to and grab the sources for the kernel you are using. (You can find out the kernel version via 'uname -r' in a terminal.)
