Unhappy Kernel Headers Missing (NDISwrapper Installation) OpenSuse11 KDE4

I am getting fed up now with the installing of
NDISwrapper on opensuse 11 (KDE4).
I begin my tryst yesterday with the installation
but still unable to gety it done , it displays
" the program 'kernel - headers ' is missing on your system ."
I already have "linux-kernel headers " installed using yast pm.but it does not comes to my respite as yet .
Can anyone get me out of this ditch????

Fedexpress in reply to your email...

actually it displays when i run the make command
make -C driver
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/fedexpress/ndiswrapper-1.53/driver'
Makefile:34: *** Cannot find kernel version in /usr/src/linux-, is it configured?. Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/fedexpress/ndiswrapper-1.53/driver'
make: *** [all] Error 2

I have read too much about that i should install kernel headers , kernel sources,
but yast already shows them , someone recommended that my kernel source might not be updated,
actually i cannot devote too much of time to get internet working thru wifi , d-link DWA 510,
chipset rt2561/RT61 ,

It sounds to me that the installer is assuming you have your kernel sources in
Try to edit the script(s) and edit the path to where your sources and kernel resides. I'm not a Suse user myself so I'm not sure where they keep them but I have encountered this type of error before.
