Thanks for your reply.

I downloaded what I thought was the source rpm for my current Linux kernel from the Suse FTP site. I then installed the source and ran the Nvidia installer with manual pointers to the source location. The installer says the source code doesn't match my current kernel. I will try this again.

Also, I may try installing the Kernel source from the CD and then run YOU to see if it updates the source code accordingly.

Lastly, if none of that works, I'll recompile the Linux kernel....something I've never done before. I guess It won't be too hard if I find out how from some web sites.

Honestly, the Nvidia installer says It does not have a compiler interface that matches my kernel version. It then procedes to check the web for kernel source code (from the Suse websight, since the installer recognizes that I have Suse distro) that matches my kernel and finds none. I already downloaded some source (correct source?) from the FTP server...(see above)
