Can't install the driver for TG-3269 TPLink Network Adapter

I have difficulties installing the driver for my new Gigabit nic card (TPLink TG-3269).
I have downloaded the driver TG-3269_100628 from: ... n=V1#tbl_a

I have followed the instructions from the README file:

- kernel source tree (supported versions 2.4.x or 2.6.x)
- compiler/binutils for kernel compilation

Unpack the tarball :

Change to the directory:
cd r1000

If you are running the target kernel, then you should be
able to do :

make clean modules (as root or with sudo)
make install
depmod -a

but I failed in the very first command: make clean modules
I get the below error:


I believe that I have installed all the necessary utils for doing the compilation:

apt-get install build-essential checkinstall linux-headers-$(uname -r)
apt-get install linux-source-2.6.32
tar -xjvf linux-source-2.6.32.tar.bz2 -C /usr/src

Am I missing something?

Please help!!!
