    Linux retard in need of help!!

    Hi, wasn't sure where to post this so just tried here. Basically I am trying to install a logitech quickcam zoom webcam. I have discovered off the net that a driver file was needed that was based on a philips driver but this was discontinued. After a bit of hunting I have tracked down this driver. I have been attempting to the follow the install directions but keep comingt across problems that are probably quite simple but i just don't understand!! This is the error I am getting during the install process

    [root@unknown-00-0d-61-2e-57-60 ~]# tar xjf pwc-10.0.12-rc1.tar.bz2
    [root@unknown-00-0d-61-2e-57-60 ~]# cd pwc-10.0.12-rc1
    [root@unknown-00-0d-61-2e-57-60 pwc-10.0.12-rc1]# make
    make -C /lib/modules/ SUBDIRS=/root/pwc-10.0.12-rc1 modules
    make: *** /lib/modules/ No such file or directory. Stop.
    make: *** [all] Error 2
    Have no idea waht this means!! please help!!

    PS I am using fedora core 8

    did it come with a configure script?
    try running
    in that folder, usually they come with one, helps find out if you have everything you need to build, which you might not
