Default Legacy and kernel 2.6.28

I know there is a patch in this thread adapted from an nvidia-supplied patch, to get the driver to compile with 2.6.28. The only box here that isn't working properly with it runs an old TNT2; 71.86.* won't compile with 2.6.28 out of the box and the patched patch doesn't apply successfully.

Code:
Verifying archive integrity... OK

Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
The text leading up to this was:

How can this be tweaked to work with the ancient driver, or will there be an update to 71.86.* soonish? 71.86.07 worked flawlessly with 2.6.27.10 (32-bit x86), for what it's worth.
