how to install ethernet card driver- ATHEROS AR8121 on FC9

Hi gentlemen,

Could you please help me to install the driver for the ethernet card of ATHEROS AR8121 on Fedora core 9?
I have the source files from Atheros but when i "make", it turns out "MAKE FILE: 62 *** LINUX KERNEL SOURCE NOT FOUND. STOP".
The current kernel on my PC is 2.6.25-14.fc9.i686

I'm gonna sound very sarcastic.. but Yum would rather like a working network card.. So kernel source installation is very tricky before the module is working...

Then just download the kernel source RPM to another machine and move it over with a USB stick or a cdrom or whatever is convenient, then use the rpm command to install it.
