    Cool installation error

    i'm trying to install module-init-tools-3.2.2 in fedora core 6.
    when i read the intsall file , and follow the instruction i perform the following :
    1. unpackage the .tar.bz2 folder

    1. cd to the new folder

    1. ./configure

    1. Type `make' to compile the package.

    until here every thing is goes good. btu when i perform the fifth step
    1. Type `make install' to install the programs and any data files and documentation.

    i found the following error.
    make[1]: Entering directory `/home/linux/Desktop/module-init-tools-3.2.2'
    /bin/sh ./mkinstalldirs /usr/local/bin
    /bin/sh ./install-with-care lsmod /usr/local/bin/lsmod
    install-with-care lsmod /usr/local/bin/lsmod

    What is the command you are using to configure or install this. For example:

    ./configure --prefix=`pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0` \
    --libexecdir=`pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0`/sbin \
    --sysconfdir=/etc/gnome --disable-gtk-doc &&
    make &&
    make install

    If you paste this I can tell you the correct command to probably fix your issue
