Default gcc version3 kenrel module problems

I tried to install the nvidia driver for the Redhat 8.0 beta2 release, which has kernel modules compiled with gcc version 3. Here is the error message I get when I try to load the NVdriver module (I created the module from the src RPMs):
Using /lib/modules/2.4.18-11/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver
/lib/modules/2.4.18-11/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver: The module you are trying to load (/lib/modules/2.4.18-11/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver) is compiled with a gcc
version 2 compiler, while the kernel you are running is compiled with
a gcc version 3 compiler. This is known to not work.
The gcc version used when recreating the NVdriver module was also gcc 3, but still I get this error message. Is there a version of the NVIDIA driver which is compatible with gcc 3 ?
