No build file in lib/modules/*

I'm trying to install ndiswrapper and I got as far as the make install part. I get an error about not having a build file in the title directory.

If it helps I'm working with a fresh install of mandrake.

OK, easy...........the /lib/modules/build file is a symlink to your kernel source a konsole window just
ln -s /usr/src/linux<version> /lib/modules/build
