Driver installation problems

i have followed several web sites directions to install the pwc driver for my logitech quickcam pro4000 to no avail. It always ends the with the same errors, see below.............

knoppix@0[pwc-10.0.11]$ make
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.11/source SUBDIRS=/home/knoppix/pwc-10.0.11 modules
/bin/sh: /usr/src/linux-2.6.11/scripts/ No such file or directory
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.11'
make[2]: scripts/ No such file or directory
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `scripts/'. Stop.
make[1]: *** [_module_/home/knoppix/pwc-10.0.11] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.11'
make: *** [all] Error 2

This is a knoppix hd install with the debian option not the knoppix.
in my /usr/src/linux-2.6.11 there is no "scripts" file so that in turn means no
"" either. There are "makefile" files in /usr/src/linux-2.6.11
and in /usr/src/modules/pwc, and in /home/knoppix/pwc-10.0.11. I have tried the "make" command from all three areas to no avail, always with the same outcome.
Anyone have this same problem?

I think you are supposed to have a scripts subdir in there. I have. Maybe reinstall linux-headers-2.6.11?
