Is there a README or INSTALL file included? You may find some help in there.

there's a readme file that i'm using to install the package. I'm following it step by step but when it tells me to run 'make config' thats when i get the above error message. unfortunately the readme file does not help with troubleshooting errors.

Well what do the install instructions tell you to do exactly? You should be getting an error message at some point in the installation.

1) untar the package using the command:

tar zxvf linux-wlan-ng-X.Y.Z.tar.gz

2) Make sure you have configured kernel and (optionally) pcmcia sources on
your system. Note that if you are _only_ building the prism2_pci,
prism2_plx, or prism2_usb drivers you don't need the pcmcia-cs
source tree.

3) To clean up any unwanted files accidentally included in the tar package,
run 'make clean'. If make clean behaves badly (infinite loop, for
example), you may have a date/time mismatch. Run the command:

find . -type f -exec touch {} \;

to fix the date&time stamps, then run 'make clean' again.


4) To configure the linux-wlan-ng package, run 'make config'. The
following set of questions will be asked. The default answer is in
braces (e.g. []). Just press <Enter> to select the default answer:

There is no:

./configure

Can you do a ./configure --help ?
