Unhappy Error while compiling module for kernel 2.6.15-1


I am new to Linux. I am trying to build sample module having "Hello, world" for precompiled kernel 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 (Fedora Core 5). I am not able get .ko file. I have written Makefile as :

obj-m += hello.o

make -C /lib/modules/$(shell uname -r)/build M=$(PWD) modules

make -C /lib/modules/$(shell uname -r)/build M=$(PWD) clean

So when I do make I get error as:

make -C /lib/modules/2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 M=/root modules
make[1]: Entering directory 'lib/modules/2.6.15-1.2054_FC5'
make[1]: ***No rule to make target 'modules'. Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory 'lib/modules/2.6.15-1.2054_FC5'
make: *** [all] Error 2

Can anybody help me in sorting out this problem......

Waiting for reply....
