linux-wlan-ng cannot find Linux source dir


Hi,

I am trying to configure the Netgear MA111 Wireless USB adapter with RedHat 9. I have updated my system with the latest kernel and have unpacked the linux-wlan-ng package.

When I try to configure linux-wlan-ng, it always chokes on finding the Linux source directory. I think that the source directory is in /usr/src/redhat. This area contains the BUILD, SPECS, SRPMS, etc directories. This is the following output that I get:

Linux source directory [/usr/src/linux]: /usr/src/redhat
Linux source tree /usr/src/redhat is incomplete or missing!
See the HOWTO for a list of FTP sites for current kernel sources.
Configuration failed.

There isn't a HOWTO packaged with linux-wlan-ng, and I'm a newbie at this so I'm not sure what to look for and where to look. :P

It'd be super if any of you could give me some tips on this or on configuring wireless USB adapter with RH9.

Thanks so much,
Adelaide

Go to the RH package manager and install the kernel source, kernel headers and development tools from the install CDs.
