Mandrake 10.1b: problems installing nVIDIA driver

I'm getting some errors trying to install the nVidia driver on my new Mandrake system. I should point out I've not much experience with Linux, so please bear with me.

First, I get a warning about a rivafb module. How can I stop the rivafb module from loading?

Second, the install bombs out anyway with the following message:

ERROR: Unable to build the NVIDIA kernel module.
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.

I've looked at the log file; there are some error messages at the end, but they don't mean a lot to me :retard:

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

Installation problems with various Mandrake 10 kernels have been discussed here before, try searching for "Mandrake 10", "PM_SUSPEND_MEM" and "--add-this-kernel".
