well, I tried "--kernel-name=linux-2.6.2-mm1" and it compiles successfully. Thats good. But then I edited my XF86Config file, and now when i startx, it errors saying: "EE - failed to initilize the nvidia kernel. EE - ****ABORTING****. EE - Screens found, but none with usable configurations."
The screens are fine, so i just dont think my nvidia kernel got installed.
