Cisco VPN NXG Client on Ubuntu 8.10 Linux ??

Hi Guys,

Generally I connect to my Corporate Network through Cisco VPN NXG Client Software from my Home on Windows Xp.I installed the Client software and could easily connect to the Corporate Network providing SecureID and credentials.
Now Recently I installed Ubuntu 8.10 OS as Dual Boot configuration.
All I tried is follow
and downloaded vpnclient-linux- and mentioned patch.Followed those steps but stucked when I ran
$sudo ./vpn_install
All it displays error(same as ):
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.27-11-generic/build SUBDIRS=/home/henry/vpnclient modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.27-11-generic’
CC [M] /home/henry/vpnclient/linuxcniapi.o
In file included from /home/henry/vpnclient/Cniapi.h:15,
from /home/henry/vpnclient/linuxcniapi.c:31:
/home/henry/vpnclient/GenDefs.h:113: error: conflicting types for ‘uintptr_t’
include/linux/types.h:40: error: previous declaration of ‘uintptr_t’ was here
make[2]: *** [/home/henry/vpnclient/linuxcniapi.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [_module_/home/henry/vpnclient] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.27-11-generic’
make: *** [default] Error 2
Failed to make module “cisco_ipsec.ko”.
I can see the post behind the page facing the same error.Few suggested to download packages for ubuntu 8.10 too but the same error is being displayed.
Anyone to help me in accessing the corporate Intranet.
