Default Official NVIDIA driver not installing

Went to install the NVIDIA drivers on my openSUSE 10.2 and long story short, the installation failed. Here's the official log:
Code:

Using: nvidia-installer ncurses user interface
-> 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.
-> Performing CC sanity check with CC="cc".
-> Performing CC version check with CC="cc".
ERROR: The kernel header file
       '/lib/modules/2.6.18.2-34-default/build/include/linux/kernel.h' does not
       exist.  The most likely reason for this is that the kernel source path
       '/lib/modules/2.6.18.2-34-default/build' is incorrect.  Please make sure
       you have installed the kernel source files for your kernel and that they
       are properly configured; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure
       you have the 'kernel-source' or 'kernel-devel' RPM installed.  If you
       know the correct kernel source files are installed, you may specify the
       kernel source path with the '--kernel-source-path' command line option.
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 should probably include that I'm using an Nvidia GeForce 6200 that is using AGP.
