VIA S-ATA Chipset Driver Installation doesn't work


I'm new to linux - but I have the following problem: I want to set up a server that runs with a serial-ata harddrive (but not to boot from that device). I am using debian (woody with 2.4.18 kernel) and wanted to install the driver found on I downloaded and deflated them. The readme.txt sais that it is only neccessary to download the sourcecode for the kernel and put it in /usr/src/linux and after that type make in the driver directory. But as you probably imagine: THIS DOESN'T WORK - It doesn't find the .h files. I looked at the sourcecode and the includes are linked to files like this:
#include <linux/modversions.h>
And it always says that those files can't be found. Can I make global links to those files or is there another more simply way to install this driver.

Thank you all in advance.
