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:

Installed: Kernel Sources (from DVD)
switched to runlevel 3 (init 3), as recommended on the nvidia site
RUN: sh (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:

that the installer will need to compile a new kernel interface.

Thank you for any ideas
