You probably don't have your kernel source installed(which distro?); it's usually not installed by default in most distros. You need to have the kernel source installed to compile kernel modules like the driver your trying to install for your modem. Check the documentation re the details for installing the driver but it usually goes:

$ ./configure
$ make
# make install

However, you'll need to install the kernel source for your kernel for the above to go.
