You cannot build a kermel module (i.e., driver) unless your kernel headers are for the exactly same kernel. In other words, if you wish to build a "NetODragon" driver for kernel 2.6.3.7mdk, you must install the headers for that kernel.

Run "uname -a" or "cat /proc/version".

You have to learn how to use http://www.google.com and read how to do things.

uname -r

will give you your kernel version

I would suggest you not use an internal modem with linux. Linux is designed to be used with external modems. Internal modem drivers reconfigure the serial ports and screw up the machine. Rarely do internal modems ever work. I have a pile of internal modems sitting in a box because they are useless with linux. Just go buy an external modem on http://www.eBay.com . You can get one for 20.00 USD. Make sure it has the 25 to 9 pin cable. Not many computers come with 25 pin serial connectors anymore.
