ndiswrapper make error

I'm trying to install a Linksys WPC54G wireless card on an old toshiba satelite ith Slackware 8.1 ( newer wouldn't install xP ).
I'm using ndiswrapper. Or, I try to.
When trying to make ndiswrapper:

root@TOVOMAT_M:~/ndiswrapper-1.31# make install
make: *** Warning: File `Makefile' has modification time in the future (2006-12- 05 15:14:18 > 2005-03-07 00:35:18)
make -C driver install
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/ndiswrapper-1.31/driver'
make[1]: *** Warning: File `Makefile' has modification time in the future (2006- 12-05 15:14:18 > 2005-03-07 00:35:19)
Can't find kernel build files in /lib/modules/2.4.18/build;
give the path to kernel build directory with
KBUILD=<path> argument to make
make[1]: *** [prereq_check] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/ndiswrapper-1.31/driver'
make: *** [install] Error 2

When I go check the directory:

root@TOVOMAT_M:/lib/modules/2.4.18# ls
build@ modules.dep modules.ieee1394map modules.parportmap modules.pnpbiosmap net/
kernel/ modules.generic_string modules.isapnpmap modules.pcimap modules.usbmap pcmcia/
root@TOVOMAT_M:/lib/modules/2.4.18# cd build
bash: cd: build: No such file or directory

where build@ is shown red. what does this mean and how is it to be solved?

Already a lot of thanks,
