ATI kernel modules build fail

Here is my problem:

I'm trying to install the latest ATI drivers for my PCI-e X800XL. This is the error I get.

ATI module generator V 2.0
patching 'highmem.h'...
assuming new VMA API since we do have kernel 2.6.x...
doing Makefile based build for kernel 2.6.x and higher
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.13/build SUBDIRS=/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/2.6.x modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.13'

WARNING: Symbol version dump /usr/src/linux-2.6.13/Module.symvers
is missing; modules will have no dependencies and modversions.

CC [M] /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/2.6.x/agp3.o

make[2]: *** [/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/2.6.x/agp3.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [_module_/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/2.6.x] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.13'
make: *** [kmod_build] Error 2
build failed with return value 2

Of course I can see I'm missing some include files, but why, or where can I get them?
