I have been trying to install a Netgear PA301 HPNA 2.0 card under Mandrake 8.1. I went to homepna.org and got their instructions for installing the HPNA drivers under Linux using the Linksys beta drivers. I installed the source (version 2.4. under /usr/src/linux-2.4.8, as instructed by the site's installation procedure. I am doing all of this as root. I follow all the site's instructions verbatim, but their procedure does not include instructions on whether to go to the iL_hybrid or iL_hybrid_dbg directory once the Linksys drivers have been extracted. Regardless, I have tried executing "gmake LINUXVER=2.4.8" under both directories, to no avail. Each time I get an error that says something like "Never use kernel system headers, rather the specific kernel headers." I have no clue how to use Linux commands, my search for help with the HPNA install procedure has been fruitless, and I am just installing it to learn a few things about it, but I would like to have access to the internet from my Linux OS, so that every time I have a problem I won't have to reboot to my Windows OS. Here is the exact wording:
