Question Linux Nvidia Installer problem

I was trying to get the Nvidia drivers installed on my Biostar M7NCG Nforce2 motherboard with Suse 8.2.
In the instructions from the Suse website says to run some commands prior to running the installer:
Suse website
1) Kernel sources must be installed and configured. Usually this means
installing the 'kernel-source' RPM with YaST2 and configure it then
with the following commands:

cp /boot/vmlinuz.config /usr/src/linux/.config
cp /boot/vmlinuz.version.h /usr/src/linux/include/linux
cp /boot/vmlinuz.autoconf.h /usr/src/linux/include/linux
cd /usr/src/linux
make cloneconfig dep

2) Use the nvidia installer.

3) Enable 3D support with SaX2.

OK I got the kernel source installed, when I ran the commands (I copied and pasted them) I got:

linux:/home/sonny # cp /boot/vmlinuz.config /usr/src/linux/.config
linux:/home/sonny # cp /boot/vmlinuz.version.h /usr/src/linux/include/linux
linux:/home/sonny # cp /boot/vmlinuz.autoconf.h /usr/src/linux/include/linux
linux:/home/sonny # cd /usr/src/linux
linux:/usr/src/linux # make cloneconfig dep
make: *** No rule to make target `cloneconfig'. Stop.

What does that mean and how do I procede with the source install?
