The problem when I install the driver of NC110T for SUSE LINUX on HP DL380 G5

I had downloaded the driver and installtaion guide from HP support site;
Driver name is e1000-7.6.9.1-1.src.rpm;
The guide told that in step "Kernel Source Code Setup" we need execute:
# cd /usr/src/linux-
# make mrproper
# make cloneconfig
# make dep
But I met such problem:
IUAS-1:/usr/src # cd linux-2.6.5-7.244
IUAS-1:/usr/src/linux-2.6.5-7.244 # make mrproper
make: *** No rule to make target `mrproper'. Stop.
IUAS-1:/usr/src/linux-2.6.5-7.244 #
IUAS-1:/usr/src/linux-2.6.5-7.244 # uname -r
2.6.5-7.244-bigsmp

Please the HP specialist provide me the sovled method! Thanks

the headers package installed but not the sources package. Once that's installed the make mrproper target should work
mrproper is used to "clean" the kernel-source tree from previously compiled files, so you can start fresh - even without a old .config.
However - you need the kernel-source installed for this and run this command from /usr/src/linux (or /usr/src/linux_version_)
whats in the /usr/src/linux ?
