Default Install problems on Debian: Unable to determine the NVIDIA kernel module filename.

Athlon XP 2200+
Debian (mostly stable)
2.4.20

I'm trying to install 5336. All the previous versions have been successfully installed (after adding the --kernel-include-path option).

Here is the /var/log/nvidia-installer.log file:

driver will be uninstalled. Are you sure you want to continue? ('no' will a
bort installation) (Answer: Yes)
-> No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you li
ke the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel f
rom the NVIDIA ftp site (ftp://download.nvidia.com)? (Answer: No)
-> No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; this means
that the installer will need to compile a new kernel interface.

specified by the '--kernel-source-path' commandline option.

ERROR: Unable to determine the NVIDIA kernel module filename.
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file

on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
driver download page at www.nvidia.com.


Any suggestions?
