[GLLUG] Basic Linux Question from a very young Newb

I have been monitoring the list for the past few
weeks, and you guys and gals really seem to know what
you are doing.  I am still very new to the whole Linux
scene, and if this is not the right place to ask this
question, let me know.

I am running Mandrake 9.0 on a laptop.  It works
without any problems.  However, I am trying to connect
my linksys wireless connection.  I have downloaded the
prism2 driver set from Linksys, but can't get the darn
think installed.  When I run the ./Configure file it
asks me for the kernel location, and uses the standard
(default) location - I think so at least.  However, I
get an error message, and it will not configure.  So
needless to say, I can't even run Make.  I have
searched high and low for the kernel, and only found a
file called Linux-2.4.0 in the /etc path.  I am stuck.
 I am logged in as root, but can't seem to get this

Can anyone help (without laughing at me.)
