miss autoconf.h kernel source?

II have Mandrake 10.1 linux edition, I installed without problems but when install the Intel 537ep modem drivers I got a problem. I have read the readme.txt and i have done this steps:
login as root
unzip the driver
go to the created folder and:
make clean
make 537
make install

I miss autoconf.h seem it does not exist...

[belsatam@localhost Drivers]$ su
[root@localhost Drivers]# dir
[root@localhost Drivers]# cd intel-537EP_secure-
[root@localhost intel-537EP_secure-]# make clean
cd coredrv; make clean
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/oscar/Desktop/Drivers/intel-537EP_secure-'
rm -f *.ko *.o *~ core
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/oscar/Desktop/Drivers/intel-537EP_secure-'
rm -f *.o *.ko
[root@localhost intel-537EP_secure-]# make 537
Module precompile check
Current running kernel is:
/lib/modules... autoconf.h does not exist
please install kernel source
make: *** [check] Error 1
[root@localhost intel-537EP_secure-]#

Any idea???

You need the kernel source installed ("urpmi kernel-source" should do it).
