To be safe, compile the driver as a user other than root by extracting
the .tar.gz file in the home directory of that user (this also helps prevent
accidentally writing over files) and then typing make. Could you send a
snippet of the error messages you receive when typing make?

Could you do a ls -l in the directory /usr/src/linux? And also in the linux-
2.4.4.SuSE and linux-2.4.4GB directories? I'm not familiar with SuSE
and the layout of the source tree....
