Default debian wont work with nforce2

hello, i'm new to the board
tried to install debian 3 r1 yesterday. now i want to install the nforce drivers, so i downloaded the necessary tar.gz files and unzipped the nforce drivers. i have kernel 2.4.18
if i use the make command, i get the following error message(excerpt):
in file included from nvnet.h:20,
from nvnet.c:21:
/usr/include/linux/module.h:21: linux/modversions.h: no such file or directory
make[1]:leaving directory 'root/nforce/nvnet'
make:***[nvnet=make] Error2
i really dont know what the problem is since i'm a new linux user...could you help me please?

You need the kernel-source package that matches your kernel version. If there is no such thing as kernel-source for Debian, then try kernel-headers -- but ONLY if there is no kernel-source.

And, you have to create a symlink "linux" in the /usr/src dir which points to your kernel header-directory. (/usr/src/kernel-headers-2.4.18xxx) Yes, the makefile seems poorly written :-(
