Trying to compile ov511 for Fedora 1

HI there,
I am trying to compile the latest version (1.65) of ov511 to support my webcam (Creative Labs model PD0040) - which requires the ov518-decomp.o module to be available.

When I type make (after make clean) I get the following errors. I have no idea what to do next. I don't think I have the kernel source available locally, although I found a directory with .h files.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am running the latest up2date Fedora 1

[gb041891@localhost ov511-1.65]$ make
gcc -c -D__KERNEL__ -DMODULE -DOUTSIDE_KERNEL -O2 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -fomit-frame-pointer -I/lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/include -DEXPORT_SYMTAB ov511.c
In file included from /usr/include/linux/module.h:20,
from ov511.c:53:
/usr/include/linux/modversions.h:1:2: #error Modules should never use kernel-headers system headers,
/usr/include/linux/modversions.h:2:2: #error but rather headers from an appropriate kernel-source package.
/usr/include/linux/modversions.h:3:2: #error Change -I/usr/src/linux/include (or similar) to
/usr/include/linux/modversions.h:4:2: #error -I/lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build/include
/usr/include/linux/modversions.h:5:2: #error to build against the currently-running kernel.
ov511.c:56:27: linux/vmalloc.h: No such file or directory
