Installing Driver in Linux

hi,

I'm trying to install Aculab (telephony Baord) Driver but I get this:

It appears that the kernel sources have not been installed.
/lib/modules/2.6.26-2-686/build should be a link to the kernel source tree.
The source package should be called something like 'kernel-source-[version].rpm'
and can be found on your Linux distribution media.

I'm guessing that this means that I need to download the kernel source again, but how would I link  /lib/modules/2.6.26-2-686/ to the kernel source... or does this means something else? what exactly do I need to do?

Thanks.. I'm using Debian Lenny... Kernel 2.6.26-2-686

thanks

To compile a module, you normally don't need the kernel source but the linux-headers packet installed.

how would I create a symbolic link though.. I know the command but what would I use

Hemmi,

if I download linux-header and install it will that fix the issue you think?

The installation of linux-headers should create the link automatically.
