Clean Install of Fedora Core 4

Hello,

I am trying to reinstall from my Fedora Core 4 CD. The problem is When I try to install my rt2500 chipset drivers, the "make" command produces the following error

root@localhost Module]# make
make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.11-1.1369_FC4smp/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
rt2500.ko failed to build!
make: *** [module] Error 1

The file and directory are there, but if I navigate to the "make" file and click on it I get an error message saying I have a broken link. Make is looking for a file in /usr/src/kernels/2.6.1.11 ........ but in my system the location is /usr/src/kernels/2.6.1.15 ........ I suspect that this is because previously I had installed a newer version of the kernel. Selecting "Remove all linux partitions on this system" when I reinstalled must not remove them all.
How can I format the hard drive so that I can get a clean install??

You are trying to build a kernel module and need to install the kernel-devel package for the kernel you use. So
Code:
yum install kernel-devel-$(uname -r)
See the release notes.

The correct package name is kernel-smp-devel:
Code:
yum install kernel-smp-devel
