Question Do I have to reinstall NVIDIA drivers after every kernel upgrade?

I just recently shoved my GeForce 2 GTS card into my Red Hat 7.3 box.

After much dismay, I figured out how to install the NVIDIA drivers. My issue was that I was running the 2.4.18-5 kernel and installing the drivers using the "packaged" rpms and not the source rpms.

I ended removing the 2.4.18-5 kernel and installing the drivers on the 2.4.18-3 kernel. The NVIDIA drivers appear to work now.

My question is that if I want to upgrade my kernel to 2.4.18-5 do i need to rebuild the NVIDIA_kernel from the source rpm.
Thanks
