Soundblaster XFi

Hi I'm using OpenSUSE 11.2 and am having problems with getting sound. The card is a Soundblaster XFi Xtreme Audio. YaST2 finds the card by name in the sound config. The card works perfectly fine on winblows XP. I've tried make under SU on their nix driver but got this error

make -C /lib/modules/ M=/home/andrew/XFiDrv
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-'
make -C ../../../linux- O=/usr/src/linux-

Do you have the kernel headers installed? Because it sounds like that is what you are missing. I don't know what the package is called under SUSE, but it is usually linux-headers-<version> or some such.
