Virtual Server 2005 VM Additions Kernel Module Error

I'm trying to install VM Additions on my virtualized SUSE 10 and mandriva distributions. I've installed the kernel source (to my knowledge) and i can see it in usr/src. I've also installed gcc.

the script all failed 1/2 way through with make: **8 [kernel-module] Error 1.

I tried the rpm installation, which was successful, however when i try to start the vmadd in \etc\init.d\ with ./vmadd start, i get the following error:
(kernel module) not found.

any ideas? this happens on both SUSE10 and mandriva.

I think you have upgraded the SUSE 10 kernel version so that default VM installation do not support. Please check you kernel version "uname -a" first.
