Default yet another poor soul with nvnet woes (running RH9)

I'm running Red Hat 9 with the 2.4.20-8 kernel. I've tried using both the SRPM and the tar file from nVidia's site, and I can't seem to get either working for the life of me.

First I tried:
rpmbuild --rebuild <package name>

Then I tried (after unpacking the tar of course):
cd nvnet
make clean
make install

In either case, I'm getting errors. When using the SRPM I get this:

*** [nvnet.o] Error 1
Leaving directory '/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/nforce/nvnet'
*** [nvnet_make] Error 2
Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.3756 (%build)

When going through the tar install I get this:

mkdir -p //lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/net
install -b -m 644 nvnet.o //lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/net
install: cannot stat 'nvnet.o': No such file or directory
make: *** [install] Error 1

I'm at my wit's end. I've read countless posts on these forums and tried anything and everything I can think of. I'm quite the newbie when it comes to linux so this is starting to get rather frustrating. Can anyone give me any idea as to what I need to do to get this working?!

*Note* I forgot to mention before that I've added the line alias eth0 nvnet to modules.conf.
Best regards,
