Error: "make: *** No rule to make target `folder'. Stop."

hello all,

this is shri here and i am new to this community though i have been using linux for quite a while.

i am a fedora10 user and i am getting this no rule to make target error while compiling a simple hello world program. i went through some of the posts that are already posted in this forum regarding this topic though i have not been able to solve the problem yet.

here is the output when i try to compile the program.

[root@localhost untitled folder]# make -C /lib/modules/ M=`pwd` modules
make: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernels/'
make: *** No rule to make target `folder'. Stop.
make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernels/'
I googled this topic a lot but still the problems remains and i am totally stuck with this for the last few days. Please help me out.

It does not appear that you are making a simple hello world program.

You should post what you have coded ... and your Makefile.
