make modules errors out

Just installed Mandrake 9.2. Installed the kernel source using the kernel RPM. Below is what happens when I run make modules

[root@localhost linux]# make modules

hey - why dont you just download the kernel source from, instead of the mdk one and try?

Is that the best option? Is it not best to use the kernel that comes with the distro?
