trying to make my ATI 9600XT Work in MDK9.2

i saw a guide that said how to make the 9600 xt work, but i dont have my kernel's source. i followed the instructions provided with the drivers and i get an error saying "no kernel module build environment" during the RPM install.
i got this error message:

*** Trying to install a precompiled kernel module.
*** WARNING ***
Tailored kernel module for fglrx not present in your system.
You must go to /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod subdir
and execute './' to build a fully customed kernel module.
Afterwards go to /lib/modules/fglrx and run './'
in order to install the module into your kernel's module repository.
(see readme.txt for more details.)

As of now you can still run your XServer in 2D, but hardware acclerated
OpenGL will not work and 2D graphics will lack performance.

*** Error: no kernel module build environment - please consult readme.

i looked in ATI's site and it says i need to build and install a kernel module for the ATI proprietary linux driver.
i followed the instructions provided and it says that i need my kernel's source to be installed. now, i looked everywhere in my hard drive and i couldnt find anywhere the source for the kernel that comes with MDK 9.2 (2.4.10-mdk or something really similar to that). where can i go about getting this source? (i discarded upgrading the kernel cuz its still too damn hard for me (linux newb :p))

Try Mandrake 10 and while you install select kernel sources. Or if you have Mandrake 9.2 CD2 I think you can just select kernel sources as if you were installing a program (in mandrake control center some were). Haven't used mandrake in a while.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
