Linux nForce Driver - AMD64 Version: 1.0-0283 installing on SUSE 9.1 Pro


Alright, my problem is almost the same as the first guys, except I am running a different kernel. I am running 2.6.4-52 on Suse 9.1 Pro. Now my problem is that I can not get my network card running. There are 2 bult in gigabit slots. One of them linux sees(but will not run) the other it does not even see. So I am stuck with no internet. After so long research I think I found a fix. http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_n..._1.0-0283.html , I think this will take care of at least some of my problems, but I can not install this. I get the following errors:


Code:
 No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; this means 
  that the installer will need to compile a new kernel interface. 

                                       OK 

  ERROR: Unable to find the kernel source tree for the currently running 
         kernel.  Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files 
         for your kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you 
         have the 'kernel-source' rpm installed.  If you know the correct 
         kernel source files are installed, you may specify the kernel source 
         path with the '--kernel-source-path' commandline option. 

                                       OK 

  ERROR: Installation of the network driver has failed.  Please see the file 
         '/var/log/nvidia-nforce-installer.log' for details.  You may find 
         suggestions on  fixing installation problems in the README available 
         on the Linux driver download page at www.nvidia.com. 

                                       OK


And the error log

Now I tried to do what was said in earlier posts about doing this:
1) Open a terminal (as root) and type "init 3"
2) "cd /usr/src/linux"
3) "make cloneconfig"
4) "make prepare-all"

BUT once i get to step 3 is says "bash: make: command not found"

How can i fix this problem? Thanks a million,

Justin
