Default kernel 2.4.23-pre6 and nforce2 linux driver

Hello!
I tried to install NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336 video driver from Nvidia on my Slackware 9.1 distro with kernel 2.6.3--bk8.
At compilig the driver I got error:

-> 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

-> No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; this means
that the installer will need to compile a new kernel interface.

What is wrong? Is there any chance to compile and instal the driver.

Please help.

The driver compiles and works on my current working kernel 2.4.23-pre6.
