Make sure your kernel and your kernel-devel versions match:

and	2.6.18-128.1.14.el4

are not the same version. You can have more than one kernel and more than 
one kernel-devel package installed at the same time.

But what is far the easiest solution is to head over to the elrepo 
repository at:


and then download the package for your kernel:


Install that by doing, eg.

 	rpm -Uhv http://elrepo.org/linux/elrepo/el5/i386/RPMS/kmod-fuse-2.7.4-1.el5.elrepo.i686.rpm

and all should be fine. No need for dkms, dkms-fuse, kernel-devel, 
kernel-headers or a compiler. I recommend it nowadays over any dkms 

Good luck and please report back !
