/usr/src/linux does not exist

I am installing vmware on a patched SUSE 9.1 Pro install.
I see posts about running #make cloneconfig from the /usr/src/linux dir.

This dir does not exists on my machine.

Any ideas?

check just usr/src -- and see if you havea dir that represents your kernel, /usr/src/linux is a simlink to /usr/src/your kernel source files

Well I installed the Kernel Source package and that cleared that mystery up.

The problem now is when I run #make cloneconfig I get the following output:

linux:/usr/src/linux # make cloneconfig
-include /var/adm/running-kernel.make

The .config file is a merged configuration; please remove it by hand before creating your own. You can use one of the files arch/i386/defconfig.* as a template.

make[1]: *** [check-meta] Error 1
make: *** [cloneconfig] Error 2

when I #mv .config .config.bkup and run #make cloneconfig again
I get 20 questions that I do not know how to answer.

thanks again.
