Default Redhat 7.0 kernel not compiling

Completely new to linux, no idea on how to compile kernels

What I've got:

amd1800+
Red Hat linux 7.0 - kernel 2.2.16-22
GeForce 4 MX 440 SE
256 MB Ram

I'm trying to install the latest driver (4636) but the installer tells me that it will have to compile a new kernel interface.

then it says that:

You appear to be compiling the NVIDIA kernel module with
a compiler different from the one that was used to compile
the running kernel. ..........
.....In any other case, set the CC environment variable to the
name of the compiler that was used to compile the kernel.

I don't know the name of the compiler used to compile the kernel and I have no clue how to set the CC environment variable to the specific kernel. What file do I have to change and how do I find out which compiler to change it to?

thanks., you can check the log file if you wish.

this is the first time i installed linux, so if you guys can use newbie terms, that would be great
