ncpfs under Redhat 3

I'm running redhat 3, and am trying to set up ncpfs 2.0.10.
I do a make, and it compiles happily for quite some time, but right at the end gives me an "Error 2".  Same thing with 'make install'.  Regardless, ipx_configure works fine, slists shows me all netware servers, and I can get as far as a login prompt.  However, it then dies.  there are only two files in /usr/src/ncpfs-2.0.10/bin, and no ncpfs.o file anywhere.  How dead am I?

Thanks much,

Michael M Murphree

Have you configured the source before running make??
Do you have any nessecary libraries to compile the source??

Supposedly, the only configuration necessary is setting up for KERNELD.  I've compiled it both ways, default and with KERNELD settings remarked out.  Same result each time.  The README doesn't list any required libraries, either.  I'm using kernel 1.2.13 which supposedly is a cakewalk for ncpfs.

Thanks again

Okay, here's the output error that I get from 'make':
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/ncpfs-2.0.10/kernel-1.2/src'
gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I. -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -DMODULE -fomit-frame-pointer -I/usr/src/ncpfs-2.0.10/include -I/usr/src/ncpfs-2.0.10/kernel-1.2 -DNCPFS_VERSION=\"2.0.10\"  -c dir.c
dir.c:11: linux/version.h: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [dir.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/ncpfs-2.0.10/kernel-1.2/src'
make: *** [all] Error 2

Admittedly, I should have posted this first, but I originally posted from home.

Thanks again.

Have you got the Linux kernel source installed and all the links to it from the /usr/lib & /usr/include directory set up correctly??
It tells you haw to do this in the INSTALL or README (I can't remember which) file that comes with the kernel source.

As far as I can tell, yes.  I'm doing a re-install, since I left out some libraries and such first time around.  Hoping for the best.

You didn't install the kernel header packages.  These are the packages that include the version.h header.  ncpfs' make probably assumes that you have these and the kernel source installed.
