No /lib/modules/2.6.10-5-386/build

Hi all

I have a dell d610 and i was trying to compile the ipw2200 module, because it new version (1.0.4) supports monitor mode. I downloaded the module source and unziped it... and when i tried to compile it:

kheno@exodia:~/Desktop/ipw2200/ipw2200-1.0.4$ make
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.10-5-386/build SUBDIRS=/home/kheno/Desktop/ipw2200/ipw2200-1.0.4 MODVERDIR=/home/kheno/Desktop/ipw2200/ipw2200-1.0.4 modules
make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.10-5-386/build: No such file or directory
make: ** [modules] Erro 2
I tried to find the solution at google, but i didn't find the solution

What should i do ?

/lib/modules/2.6.10-5-386/build is a link to the directory of your kernel sources (usually /usr/src/linux-<version>). They might not be installed. So if you install them it should work.
