Hi, thanks for your message. Unfortunately, I am begginer in Linux and probably I did not understand the first part of you mail.
I found source file on my cd: kernel-2.4.20-19.9.src.rpm (it is a kernel of my aurox system). I copied it on hard disk and tried to install:
rpm -ivh kernel-2.4.20-19.9.src.rpm
I got the output:
error: cannot create %sourcedir /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES
I don't understand what is going on...why can't he create ? i was root.
But maybe i shoul do something else.

If I'm not mistaken, to install the src you should use rpm -ivh kernel_version.src.rpm . It appears that rpm is confused with the --rebuilddb option and then an rpm.
IMO, using the tar.gz file and a manual install for nvnet is solid and works whether there is a compiled version for a kernel or not. None of the other bagage in the nforce package is used and is a short and sweet install.
Make sure the kernel source is installed as per the above discussion.
