Question SuSE 9.1 and LinkSys WPC11 Troubles! HELP

I am running SuSE 9.1 personal (box version) on a Dell Laptop. I'm trying to get my WPC11 ver 3.0 card to work using the PCMCIA slot.

I've downloaded the Linux driver from Linksys' web site and uncompressed it using tar to the /home/user/bin/linux-wlan-ng-0.2.1pre21. When I ran the './Configure' script I got the following errors:

I'm new to linux and trying to learn but have now idea where to locate the source folder on the PC. This source code stuff is new to me. Am I really modifying the source and compiling a new kernel after the .\configure command?

What am I doing wrong? HELP!

-------------- Linux WLAN Configuration Script -------------

The default responses are correct for most users.

Build Prism2.x PCMCIA Card Services (_cs) driver? (y/n) [y]: y

Build Prism2 PLX9052 based PCI (_plx) adapter driver? (y/n) [n]: n

Build Prism2.5 native PCI (_pci) driver? (y/n) [n]: n

Build Prism2.5 USB (_usb) driver? (y/n) [n]: n

Linux source directory [/usr/src/linux]: marcuch/src/linux

Linux source tree /marcuch/src/linux is incomplete or missing!
See HOWTO for a list of FTP sites for current kernel sources.

Configuration failed

linux:/home/marcuch/bin/linux-wlan-ng-0.2.1-pre21 #

I found a couple of other posts that state that the source kernel (for SuSe, anyway) is kept in /usr/include/linux.

I guess the reasoning for this is that the /src/ area is a developers playground. The /include/ directory is for runtime files.

I guess once I read the other notes, it made sense to me. If I could find them, I would post the notes I am referencing. They are floating around this forum somewhere.
