Unhappy Red Hat 7.3 2.4.18-3 & Nvidia drivers

well it's day three of my attempt to install the Nvidia drivers to my Red Hat 7.3 OS ... and still no success, the only problem is that i really don't know a way out this time

i've first installed the drivers with the rpm-files but i got the
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize ...

so after reading the FAQ out the Readme i realised i had to reinstall the NVIDIA drivers with the tar-files and make the install with the command

make install SYSINCLUDE=/path/to/kernel/headers

the only problem is when i try to do that i get the following error:

/bin/sh nv_compiler.h: Read Only File System
make:***[nv_compiler.h] Error 1

can someone help my out of this mess ? i'm really desperate ...

TIA and greets
