ndiswrapper on fedora 12 install/make problems

I am running an hp mini 1000 with Fedora 12 and a broadcom wireless card. ive downloaded the drivers and installed wine to extract the driver files. All works fine until I start the make process in which I get the following error:
make -c driver
make[1]: entering directory '/home/james/Downloads/ndiswrapper-1.56/driver'
Makefile:34: ***Cannot find kernel version in /usr/src/kernels/, is it configured?. Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory /home/james/Downloads/ndiswrapper-1.56/driver'
make: *** [all] Error 2

This has really been frustrating me...two days I have tried figuring this out, but I am a linux newb.

Fedora 12 is no longer supported (see this), so you'd be better off installing a newer version (15 is the latest). You may even find that ndiswrapper is no longer needed.
