I'm having an issue with VPN connections and FC5

1)  I'm having problems with compiling on 2.6.16-1.2096_FC5-i686

Cisco Systems VPN Client Version 4.7.00 (0640) Linux Installer
Copyright (C) 1998-2005 Cisco Systems, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

By installing this product you agree that you have read the 
license.txt file (The VPN Client license) and will comply with
its terms.

Directory where binaries will be installed [/usr/local/bin]

Automatically start the VPN service at boot time [yes]

In order to build the VPN kernel module, you must have the
kernel headers for the version of the kernel you are running.

Directory containing linux kernel source code

* Binaries will be installed in "/usr/local/bin".
* Modules will be installed in
* The VPN service will be started AUTOMATICALLY at boot time.
* Kernel source from "/lib/modules/2.6.16- 1.2096_FC5/build" will be
used to build the module.

Is the above correct [y]

Making module
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.16-1.2096_FC5/build
SUBDIRS=/home/nswint/vpnclient modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.16- 1.2096_FC5-i686'

make: *** [default] Error 2
Failed to make module "cisco_ipsec.ko".

2) When using NetworkManager-vpnc the options for my vpn connections are
present when I'm wired or wireless.  When I switch to using my cell
phone as a modem thru edge(it acts as a dialup modem on ppp0)  the vpn
connections are greyed out.  They only work on an ethernet or wireless
connection but not on dialup.
