When it asked for the C header files for my installed kernel (2.6.18-6), hey could not be found.  When I initially installed CentOS, I made sure everything was included, so I am at a loss why they can not be found.  I haven't tried installing it via the RPM, but I don't think it will make a difference.  Any and all thoughts are appreciated.  Thanks!

Once you have the kernel-devel package installed, I believe you need
to make a link called /usr/src/linux from the actual location of the
kernel headers.  Sorry I can't be more specific.  I did that a month
or so ago, and I'm not at that machine right now.
