Error while compiling Smartlink modules

Hello everybody

I've been installing the Smartlink modules on my SuSE 10.1 distro in order to make my USB 56K modem work.

The kernel is

Problem is, when I run "make install" what I get is:
Xabaras:/usr/src/packages/SOURCES/slmodem-2.9.10 # make install
make -C modem all
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/packages/SOURCES/slmodem-2.9.10/modem'
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/packages/SOURCES/slmodem-2.9.10/modem'
make -C drivers KERNEL_DIR=/lib/modules/
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/packages/SOURCES/slmodem-2.9.10/drivers'
cc -I/lib/modules/ -o kernel-ver kernel-ver.c
make all KERNEL_VER=2.6.16
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/packages/SOURCES/slmodem-2.9.10/drivers'
make modules -C /lib/modules/ SUBDIRS=/usr/src/packages/SOU RCES/slmodem-2.9.10/drivers
make[3]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-'
make[3]: *** No rule to make target `modules'. Stop.
make[3]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-'
make[2]: *** [all] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/packages/SOURCES/slmodem-2.9.10/drivers'
make[1]: *** [all] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/packages/SOURCES/slmodem-2.9.10/drivers'
make: *** [drivers] Error 2

As a result, in the end the devices /dev/slusb0 or /dev/ttySL0 are not installed.
Sorry, which is my mistake?
