Problems trying to compile custom ATI binary driver

When i try to compile a custom module for my ATI radeon 9000 pro, i get this error:

ATI module generator V 2.0

kernel includes at /usr/src/linux/include do not match current kernel.
they are versioned as "2.4.19"
instead of "2.4.19-4GB".
you might need to adjust your symlinks:
- /usr/include
- /usr/src/linux

I read the linux installation tips on ATI's site, and it says that it tries to find a matching set of kernel includes. Does this mean that the program looks for the plain 2.4.19 kernel sources? If that is the case would downloading the 2.4.19 kernel sources (from help ?
