Default Nvidia and SuSE 9.0 Problems

Can anyone help me to get the nvidia graphic card driver installed in my SuSE Linux 9.0?

Here what I did so far:

Downloaded: NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run
Installed: Kernel Sources (from DVD)
switched to runlevel 3 (init 3), as recommended on the nvidia site
RUN: sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run (as root)

Then I got the following result (my nvidia-installer.log file)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
nvidia-installer log file '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log'
creation time: Thu Feb 19 02:07:08 2004

option status:

-> License accepted.
-> 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.
-> Kernel source path: '/usr/src/linux'
-> Performing cc_version_check with CC="cc".
ERROR: Unable to determine the NVIDIA kernel module filename.
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file
'/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find suggestions
on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
driver download page at www.nvidia.com.
