Angry Problems compiling LIRC on Fedora Core 2

I have been running the configuration script I select the "Hauppauge TV card (new I2c Layer required)" for my Hauppauge PVR 350 card. Then I tell the configuration script/program to "Save configuration & run configure"... then it exits and spues a bunch of stuff donw my screen (no errors)
and ends with

"Now enter 'make' and 'make install' to compile and install the package"
so I start w/ make.... and it returns this:

cd . \
/bin/sh ./config.status
config.status: creating config.h
config.status: config.h is unchanged
make all-recursive
make[1]: Entering directory '/root/Desktop/lirc/lirc-0.6.6'
Making all in drivers
make[2]: Entering directory '/root/Desktop/lirc/lirc-0.6.6/drivers/lirc_dev'
Makefile:380: /usr/src/linux//Rules.make: No such file or directory
make[3]: *** No rule to make target '/usr/src/linux//Rules.make'. Stop.
make[3]: Leaving directory '/root/Desktop/lirc/lirc-0.6.6/drivers/lirc_dev'
make[2]: *** [all-recurisve] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory '/root/Desktop/lirc/lirc-0.6.6/drivers'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory '/rood/Desktop/lirc/lirc-0.6.6'
make: *** [all] Error 2

I have the sybolic link from /usr/src/linux --> /usr/src/`user -r`
(aka whatever my current kernel is...)
and there isn't a "Rules.make" file anywhere around /usr/src/linux that I can find.... so what am I doing wrong??

P.S. Also... at the start of this post I was talking about the item I selected, the "Hauppauge TV card (new I2c Layer required)", do I have to have something installed for the I2c layer???
