You do not have the kernel headers installed..

Run the following commands (substitute apt-get for aptitude if that is what you use..)

aptitude update
aptitude install build-essential module-assistant
m-a update
m-a prepare

now try to compile the driver again.. it should work this time.

Cheers !!
