Fail to build broadcom driver

I'm trying to get around with backtrack3 on my Dell Inspiron 1525, which has a NIC of Broadcom. Broadcom has released a driver of their own for this. I've downloaded it and I'm failing to build it.

After I untarred it, I'm trying to run "make",
but I get:
KBUILD_NOPEDANTIC=1 make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r` /build M=`pwd`
make: *** /lib/modules/ No such file or directory. Stop.
make: *** [all] Error 2

But the directory /lib/modules/ DOES exist. any ideas?

The link may exist, but does it point to a valid source directory?
