Default RH kernel 2.4.20-20.9 DOES NOT update (nvidia driver)

I have been struggling with this for a long time. I finally gave up and reloaded RH9. The very first thing I did is update my nvidia driver (successfully). My kernel after reinstall is 2.4.20-6. The kernel I was having so many problems with was 2.4.20-20.9. I could not get nvidia to update no matter what I tried.
Also note that when I did everything, it took a while for the x server to start the first time. I had a blank screen for several minutes.
I would recommend reinstalling your distro, being sure to include binutls and gcc under the development tools section. I have not updated my kernel again. Do not plan on it either.
NVIDIA people, I am seeing more and more people having problems with RH9 and your new driver update. I strongly recommend finding a work around for this
