UsRobotics ADSl Modem 9000 - Drivers

Hello everybody; I own a 9000 ADSL Modem with Linux drivers downloaded from;
the drivers are in src code and doesn't support them directly;
trying to compile them i obtain the following error:

polaris:/usr/local/src/usr9000/ADI_LINUX# make
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/local/src/usr9000/ADI_LINUX'

Check and make sure you have the linux kernel source code installed, that it is the same source code as the running kernel and that you have a symbolic link /usr/src/linux pointing to it. I will check my system by opening an x terminal and giving these commands:
[phil@uilleann phil]$ su -
[root@uilleann root]# uname -r
[root@uilleann root]# cd /usr/src/linux-2.4.18-3
[root@uilleann linux-2.4.18-3]# ls
abi      COPYING        drivers  init    lib          mm      REPORTING-BUGS
arch     CREDITS        fs       ipc     MAINTAINERS  net     Rules.make
configs  Documentation  include  kernel  Makefile     README  scripts
[root@uilleann linux-2.4.18-3]# cd /usr/src
[root@uilleann src]# ls
linux-2.4  linux-2.4.18-3  redhat
[root@uilleann src]# ln -s /usr/src/linux-2.4.18-3 linux
[root@uilleann src]# ls
linux  linux-2.4  linux-2.4.18-3  redhat
[root@uilleann src]#
I noticed that my Redhat 7.3 had a symbolic link called linux-2.4 pointing to the kernel, so I created the symbolic link I needed to install the module.

The C++-sources use the "union"-Construct for better performance. Make sure, that your compiler understands this or comment it out.
