Default Installing nvidia drivers on RHEL5

I have been attempting to install the nvidia drivers on a Dell T3400 running RHEL5 (32-bit due to issues with legacy drivers). Have been trying to use the nvidia install document but it is very sparse when dealing with errors.
First issue that I encountered was that RedHat has its source code in a different location than what is expected; got around this by creating symbolic links for both the kernel source code and headers rather than using the --Kernel-Source-Path option; gets to the point where it attempts to perform the build (make modules) (from ../kernel) and the error that comes back is that there is no rule for modules.
I'm very green with Linux, but it seems like this is a lot harder than it should be. What am I missing
