Trying to install dri driver

Currently my only choice for a screen resolution is 640x480. I played with xorg.conf for a little while, but it turns out that the Intel Extreme Graphics 845GL chipset requires a special driver because it shares vides memory with system memory. So I downloaded the DRI driver. While I'm running, I get this message:

Compiling new agpgart module...

ERROR: AGPGART module did not compile

Compiling DRM module...

ERROR: Kernel modules did not compile

The DRI drivers can not be installed without the latest kernel modules.
Installation will be aborted. See the dri.log file for information on
what went wrong.
dri.log has this:

make -C /lib/modules/2.6.10-5-386/build SUBDIRS=/home/thomag/Desktop/dripkg/agpgart-2.0 modules
make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.10-5-386/build: No such file or directory.  Stop.
make: *** [default] Error 2
Makefile.linux:151: *** Cannot find a kernel config file.  Stop.
Synaptic tells me I have the package "linux-source-2.6.10" installed, but I guess this is not what the install script is looking for.

I have Ubuntu 5.04 installed. I'm a linux noob. Thanks in advance for any help!
