Troubles compiling Asus NX1101 driver (Gigabit Network Adapter) on Debian Etch

I've got some troubles installing my gigabit network adapter on Debian Etch.

The readme on the cd says:
        b. for kernel 2.6.x
           #make all  => generate ipg.ko
           #insmod ./ipg.ko
           #ifconfig eth0 netmask yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy
              eth0 is your network adapter,use "dmesg" to check it, ex: eth0, eth1...
              xxx  is your ip address, ex:
              yyy  is your netmask address, ex:
The result is:

whizz@t44:~/bin/nx1101$ sudo make all
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.18-6-686/build SUBDIRS= modules
make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.18-6-686/build: No such file or directory.  Stop.
make: *** [all] Error 2
I think I'm missing something like kernel sources or something?

I've been looking around on the internet and I have installed the linux-kernel-headers package, but that didn't help...

Try this..

aptitude update
aptitude install build-essential module-assistant

then try your build again..

Thanks, that gets me a bit further.

Now I get this error:
whizz@t44:~/bin/nx1101$ sudo make all
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.18-6-686/build SUBDIRS= modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.18-6-686'
scripts/ /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.18-6-686/scripts/basic/Makefile: No such file or directory
make[3]: *** No rule to make target `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.18-6-686/scripts/basic/Makefile'.  Stop.
make[2]: *** [scripts_basic] Error 2
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `include/config/auto.conf', needed by `include/config/kernel.release'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.18-6-686'
make: *** [all] Error 2
What to do about that?


debian, driver
