Cool Problems fixing common Cisco VPN issue...

Greetings all;

I'm new to this forum - but have been running Redhat for a while & just installed Fedora. I need a bit of help with a common problem with the Cisco VPN client; I got some unexpected output. I'm running all this as root. Attachments show my output. Here's my system:

uname -a
2.6.25-14.fc9.i686 #1 SMP Thu may 1 06:28:41 EDT 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

rpm -qa | grep kernel
kernel-headers-2.6.25-14.fc9.i386 <YUM installed the 32bit version?!

Anyway, I have that problem that results in "Failed to make module cisco_ipsec.ko". Another interesting error was "*** No rule to make target 'module'. Stop."

I have the patch everyone knows about, and I issued:
patch -f < ./vpnclient-linux-2.6.24-final.dff

and recieved
"can't find file to patch at input line 4"
Text leading up to this error was diff -Nur vpnclient/GenDefs.h vpncleint.new/GenDefs.h
No file to patch. Skipping patch.
2 out of 2 hunks ignored

"can't find file to patch at input line 28"
Text leading up to this error was diff -Nur vpnclient/interceptor.c vpncleint.new/interceptor.c
No file to patch. Skipping Patch
7 out of 7 hunks ignored.

I also tried to run the patch for 64bit systems:
patch -f < ./cisco_skbuff_offset.patch

It barfed on:

line 4: frag.c
line 19: interceptor.c
line 79: linuxcniapi.c
line 124: linxkernelapi.c

All hunks ignored.

What do I need to change / alter / download to fix this?
