Problems installing Radeon 9700 Pro on Suse 8.1

Hello! I am an absolute Linux newbie and I've got some problems installing my Radeon 9700 Pro under Suse 8.1
After executing the rpm-Package from ATI the setup sais that for my Kernel an individual module has to be created. I am supposed to start the, however after starting it I am getting several errors which I do not understand.
This is the make.log:
ATI module generator V 2.0

Can anyone help me with this problem, please.

ok, you must provide the autoconf.h file, we can find this in your kernel source directory (in <src-kernel>/include/linux) after a compilation.

personal kernel =>
0) compile your kernel if you made a "make clean" or "make mrproper"

1) <src-kernel-path>/include/linux/autoconf.h exist ??
no => there is a problem with kernel compilation, try again
yes=> good, go to next step

2) you must modify the variable linuxincludes (in the begining) with the kernel source path (with the include)

my kernel source is in the /usr/src/kernel-source-2.4.20/


3) you must comment the "if then fi" just after (put a # in the begining of the line) and the other variable linuxincludes

distrib kernel =>
find autoconf.h (maybe in /boot, or in header package, try "locate autoconf.h" ) and modify

PS: sorry for my english, i am french :-(
