I'm tired of reading, tired of trying to find a solution myself, that's why I decided to post my question.

I'm following tutorial located at CentOS Wiki to install driver for my wifi device.

However, I'm facing strange error at the begining of the process.

make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/ M=`pwd`
make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.18-194.11.3.el5PAE/build/: File not found

Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? This is first time when I try to install Linux on my laptop.
