Question rtl8180 help please.

I am running Fedora Core 5 kernel 2.6.15-1.2054 on a presario r3000, I want to add I'm a noob. I am having a problem compiling drivers for a WPC11 ver.4 chipset: rtl8180 and getting it to work.
Here is what I have done so far, I have downloaded and installed the kernel-devel package and made an update for everything except the kernel. I have downloaded drivers from realtek : rtl8180_linuxdrv_v15_fedora3.zip
and the drivers from the sourceforge project rtl8180-a4200. I have edited the Makefile in the directory to point to the kernel build directory. When I go into the driver directory and run make nothing happens. Here are the outputs of the two different driver directories.


[root@homelinux rtl8180_1.5_release26]# make
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.15-1.2054_FC5/build SUBDIRS=/home/kubus/Desktop/rtl8180_1.5_release26 MODVERDIR=/home/kubus/Desktop/rtl8180_1.5_release26 modules
make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.15-1.2054_FC5/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
make: *** [modules] Error 2

and here is
rtl8180-a4200 (sourceforge project):

[root@homelinux rtl8180-0.21]# make
Makefile:8: /lib/modules/2.6.15-1.2054_FC5/build/.config: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `/lib/modules/2.6.15-1.2054_FC5/build/.config'. Stop.

I have been working on this for about two weeks googling to find a solution, without any luck. Could someone who knows what they are doing help me get this card working with these drivers. And I don't want to try ndiswrapper because I was going to use this card with kismet. Thank You in advance.

One thing to add this laptop has a Broadcom Wireless built in bcm4306, I know there are native drivers, if that is easier to get going that is perfetly fine.
