Broadcom 4401 Ethernet and RedHat 9 on inspiron 5100

When calling 'make', bcm4400.o doesn't build in directory BUILD.

I am attempting to establish an sbc connection, and it seems as though the network card is not being detected as it is automated on windows.

Hi friends,

After installing RPM package,

rpm -ivh bcm4400-3.0.7-1.src.rpm

...then changing directory as,

cd /usr/src/redhat

...then attempting to build object file,

rmpbuild -bb SPECS/bcm4400.spec, error outs as,

+ umask 022
+ cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
+ CD BCM4400-3.0.7
+ export LANG
+ make bcm4400.o
Makefile:18: *** Linux kernel source
tree not found Stop.
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp
/rpm-tmp.7053 (%build)

RPM build errors:
Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.7053 (%build)

Line 18 of the makefile is:

ifeq ($(LINUX),)
$(error Linux kernel source tree not found)

...attempted assigning LINUX variable
to /usr/src/redhat instead of /usr/src/linux
in the makefile, which did not build the
object file. Any thoughts?
