[CentOS] rebuilding kernel modules issues

I have a Tyan S3870 (K855A) motherboard which I would like to perform a
burn in test with. lm_sensors needs a kernel module compiled to be
support this motherboard's sensors.
The instructions, for compiling the module, by tyan
(ftp://ftp.tyan.com/software/lms/3870.sensors.conf) match closely with
the instructions I found here
I simply installed the kernel source (yum install kernel-devel) and
tried the first basic step, cleaning (which is probably not needed at
this point), but it threw the first of many errors I have run into.
# uname -a
Linux fwtest 2.6.18-53.1.21.el5 #1 SMP Tue May 20 09:34:18 EDT 2008 i686
athlon i386 GNU/Linux
# cd /usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-53.1.21.el5-i686
# make clean && make mrproper
No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target
make: *** [drivers/infiniband/hw/amso1100] Error 2
make: *** [drivers/infiniband] Error 2
make: *** [_clean_drivers] Error 2
I then proceed to the next step of "make menuconfig". I select the
driver "i2c-piix4" and then save, exit, and attempt to compile the modules.
[root at fwtest 2.6.18-53.1.21.el5-i686]# make modules
make: *** No rule to make target `arch/i386/kernel/msr.c', needed by
make: *** [arch/i386/kernel] Error 2
I tried deselecting the "i2c-piix4" driver, and tried again with the
same results. I also tried grabbing the .config file from /boot/ (cp
/boot/config-`uname -r` ./.config) with the exact same results.
This is a clean, newly installed, fully updated system. Shouldn't I be
able to do this without error? Am I missing another package to be able
to compile the kernel modules as is?
Thanks for any help,
