adjusting symlinks in redhat 9

Hi I'm trying to install the ATI linux drivers for my 9600 pro. I installed the rpm package and ran fglrxconfig, but I still need to compile specfifc modules for my system. Or that's what I read from the readme. Anyways, when I run "" from the /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/ folder i get the error message:

[root@localhost build_mod]# ./
ATI module generator V 2.0
kernel includes at /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/build/include do not match current kernel.
they are versioned as "2.4.20-8custom"
instead of "2.4.20-8".
you might need to adjust your symlinks:
- /usr/include
- /usr/src/linux
[root@localhost build_mod]#

I'm guessing redhat 9 uses its own specialized version of the 2.4.20 kernel and according to this I just need to update my symlinks so that the kernels match each other. I'm still a newb and I'm tryin to rid myself of windows completely. Anyone out there know how to do this? Is it an overly-complicated thing to do? Thanks for the help.
