Question Can't get Intel 536 moedm chipset to install correctly on Suse Linux 9.1 Personal

Hi I'm new to Linux and just trying to set up Suse Peraonal 9.1 for the first time. Everything seems to be going well except I cannot get the driver to install correctly for my internal PCI modem with Intel 536 chipset.

I have tried searching web forums and google but so far although Suse detects the correct modem I just can't complete the install. As far as I can tell I have Kernel v2.6.4

First of all I tried installing the driver from the Intel website intel-536ep-4.69-suse91-up.tar

but this would not allow me to install as I did not have the "make" command.

I then downloaded the necessary RPM command for make and this works except that when I use the second line in the Intel instructions 'Make 536' I am told that it cannot find autoconf.h and I should install the kernel.

I have now downloaded the kernel and unzipped it to /usr/source/linux
after this I typed the following lines in shell:

cd /usr/include
rm -rf asm linux scsi
ln -s /usr/src/linux/include/asm-i386 asm
ln -s /usr/src/linux/include/linux linux
ln -s /usr/src/linux/include/scsi scsi

I still get the same error message looking for autoconf.h, unfortunately I am having to type this mail in Windows so don't have exact error message details.

I have been unable to find autoconf.h or anything similar on my HDD or Suse CD, where can I find this??

One website suggested typing make config but this failed

Any suggestions????
