Default RH 8 Problem when insmod'ing NVdriver

I have compiled the kernel module src rpm on RH 8 ok, but when I try to insmod it I get the following error:

[root@localhost root]# insmod NVdriver
Using /lib/modules/2.4.18-14/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver
/lib/modules/2.4.18-14/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver: The module you are trying to load (/lib/modules/2.4.18-14/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.
[root@localhost root]#

The odd thing is that I DID compile the module on my RH8 system (which only has gcc3.2 on)!

Does anybody have any ideas about ways to get round this problem?

Many thanks,

David
