Installing Acronis True Image - SnapAPI problem

I'm trying to get Acronis installed on my Suse 9.3 box (from but I've run into a problem. The SnapAPI module needs to be built manually but I can't seem to find the right things to put into the dkms command line. Could someone point me in the right direction.

The command line is this :
dkms build -m snapapi26 -v 0.7.10 --config <CONFIG_FILE> --arch i686 --kernelsourcedir /usr/src/linux
I'm stuck on the config file. The manual says this for this :

<CONFIG_FILE> is your kernel config filename. Usually
this file may be found in /boot directory.

My /boot directory contains 4 files :
-rw-r--r--   1 root root   29824 Apr 27  2006 config-2.6.16-rc6-060427a
-rw-r--r--   1 root root   32322 Dec 27 10:45 config-
-rw-r--r--   1 root root   30253 Jul 15  2006 config-
-rw-r--r--   1 root root   30302 Dec 16 08:24 config-
and uname -r gives

so I used config- but I get the error

Error! The directory /lib/modules/ doesn't exist.
You cannot install a module onto a non-existant kernel.

Can someone give me some advise as my server is currently clean and I want this installed before I rebuild the contents.

Many thanks.

here is what I did:
- Build and install the new module:
# dkms build -m snapapi26 -v 0.7.30 -k 2.6.18-53.1.4.el5 \
--config /boot/config-2.6.18-53.1.4.el5 --arch x86_64 \
--kernelsourcedir /lib/modules/2.6.18-53.1.4.el5/build

Hope it helps.
