Question nVidia Drivers - Installing from Source on RH9

I have the MSI K7N2G M/B with the nForce2 chipset.



I have managed to install Red Hat 9 (kernal 2.4.20-8) with no problems except that the Network isn't working and I think the hard disk is running slow.

I have seen posts on making and installing a new kernal to address the ATA100 problem but I am stuck on installing the nVidia drivers.

I have downloaded the source rpm
NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0248.src.rpm

Put this in my home directory and tried to do the rebuild as instructed in the release notes.

After SU and password I am typing

rpm --rebuild NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0248.src.rpm

This gives me the response

--rebuild: unknown option.

I have set up a couple of linux systems in the past but never had problems with drivers. So in this I am still just newbie.

Am I doing something fundamentally wrong?
