cant build in slack

Hello all, i just installed a fresh copy of slackware 9 on my laptop. (full version with everything). Now im trying to setup my wireless card (orinoco) My card works fine now and i can surf the net and see my network. But i want to be able to have the ioctl monitor for my card (hope i said that right =) ) well basically when i do iwpriv i want monitor to show.

so i followed this tutorial/write-up

hxxp://w w
change the hxxp to h t tp , i cant post links yet =)

but when i get up to step 7, i get error on the make/build

the error i get is

make -C /lib/modules/2.4.20/build SUBDIRS=/usr/src/oridriver/orinoco-0.13e modules
make: *** /libmodules/2.4.20/build: No such file or directory. Stop
make: *** [modules] Error 2

anyone know whats wrong??
did my build dissappear ?

"/lib/modules/2.4.20/build" is a symbolic link to "/usr/src/linux-2.4.20".
You don't have /usr/src/linux-2.4.20, I'm betting, because you didn't
build your own 2.4.20 kernel and modules. You can get around this
by installing the 2.4.20 kernel sources, (from CD or
cp /boot/config-ide-2.4.20 /usr/src/linux-2.4.20/.config,
cd /usr/src/linux-2.4.20
make oldconfig
make dep.
Then if necessary, and as root, create the symlink in /lib/modules/
cd /lib/modules
ln -s /usr/src/linux-2.4.20 build
