Are you using Mandriva 2009 One or Free? I believe Mandriva should have drivers for most Atheros chipsets already.
Please read the Wireless Setup guide and post the requested information.
The ./configure command presupposes there is a configuration script in the directory. It's not universally used, just commonly used.

+1, try ls in dir to see if you need to use configure, or try reading the README and INSTALL files in the dir . Though as stated above should come with the drivers already, check your card support as well. Or lspci and see if its being read at all.
