I take it this there on your system?

I expect the message really means you don't have a precompiled kernel module for nvidia. Not to worry, nobody does, if the installer is pkg0, then there aren't any kernel headers supplied with that installer, so the installer has to compile one. This relies on the link in /usr/src/linux.

So in theory it should be ok if I had a kernel-image.deb? Right? Or is that the installer only recognises a bzImage file?
Oh by the way, where should I have the kernel image file at, /usr/src directory? Plus a link to the file?

I appreciate your help.....Thanks a lot!
