Question SuSE 10.1 kernel module compiling doesn't work

I'm running SuSE 10.1 with my Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo M7400. I can't get kernel module compiled. I need that modulu 'cauze my radio kill switch doesn't allow wlan card to work.

Or is there any other way to have WLAN work? YAST tells me right wlan card and stuff, but it doesn't get connection before I turn Radio Kill switch to ON. I downloaded right module on the net.

make -command starts to make the module, but crashes and then it delete all files in that directory. README -file and all.

Any idea for anyone?

Do you have the kernel source installed? If not, you probably can't compile a kernel module.

Yes, I have kernel-source installed, and all Deveploment tools too. Same packages as the 10.0, where module is compiling normally. I don't have seen that the make command emptyes folder all files. That's weird.

I tried compiling typespeed, and that worked well.
