1.0-5336 and RedHat EWS 2.1
 
I am trying to install 1.0-5336 on Redhat EWS 2.1 (Essentially redhat 7.3) with no success. /var/log/nvidia-installer.log says;

-> License accepted.
-> No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you li
ke the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel f
rom the NVIDIA ftp site (ftp://download.nvidia.com)? (Answer: Yes)
-> No matching precompiled kernel interface was found on the NVIDIA ftp site;
this means that the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for
your kernel.
-> Kernel source path: '/lib/modules/2.4.9-e.34/build'
-> Performing cc_version_check with CC="cc".
ERROR: Unable to determine the NVIDIA kernel module filename.
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file
'/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find suggestions
on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
driver download page at www.nvidia.com.

Rpm headers and kernel sources are installed;

[root@somehost root]# rpm -qa|grep kernel
kernel-source-2.4.9-e.34
kernel-headers-2.4.9-e.34
kernel-2.4.9-e.34

I have installed older versions of the Nvidia-IA32 driver on similar systems in the past and have had no issues. Whats wrong?
