Problem adding a simple module to 2.6

Hello every1,
I am new to Linux and just installed Fedora Core 2. I tried adding a simple hello world module but I have been getting problems.
This is my hello.c program:

#include <linux/init.h>
#include <linux/module.h>
#include <linux/kernel.h>

static int hello_init(void)
printk("<1> Hello, world\n");
return 0;

static void hello_exit(void)
printk("<1> Goodbye, cruel world\n");


The Makefile for this is:

obj-m:= hello.o

KDIR:= /lib/modules/$(shell uname -r)/build
PWD:= $(shell pwd)

$(MAKE) -C $(KDIR) SUBDIRS=$(PWD) modules

so the problem is once I type the command "make" at the shell prompt it gives the following message :

$ make: Nothing to be done for 'default'

I dont know whats the problem. Can any1 please help me out here. Your help will be appreciated.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
