Odd Error Compiling MadWiFi on FC_5

Hey there.
Runnig FC5 w/ KDE everything is up to date as far as updates are concerned.

I am tryong to compile Madwifi with WPA support to get my pci wireless card to work at home.

When i first try to compile MadWifi i follow their instrcutions, and when i type make @ the directory, i get this error

[root@localhost madwifi-ng]# make
/bin/sh: line 0: cd: /lib/modules/2.6.16-1.2111_FC5/build: No such file or directory *** /lib/modules/2.6.16-1.2111_FC5/build is missing, please set KERNELPATH. Stop.

So i followed that path,

and find build in the 2.6.16-1.2111_FC5 directoy to have an orange question mark and when i clicked on it said

Error: file:///lib/modules/2.6.16-1.2111_FC5/build does not seem to exist anymore

I could really use some help guys.

Thanks in advance

You need to install kernel sources RPM.
