I am trying to install cisco vpn client on my ubuntu box but getting errors that I dont know how to resolve.

I am trying the following client:

I downloaded 4.8.01 and my ubuntu version is jaunty (9.04). Below are the errors that I get while trying to install

Making module
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.28-14-generic/build SUBDIRS=/home/bhaarat/Downloads/vpnclient modules

Can someone tell me how to resolve this or suggest some other cisco vpn for ubuntu that you know works?

Furthermore, after i get the vpn and am able to connect ...will I be able to RDP into a window machine from ubuntu?

I was looking for a way of connecting to my office VPN on Jaunty, and I used vpnc, with this article as a reference successfully.
