Default Nforce issues with SuSE 9.1

I attempted to run the nforce-1.0-0274.tar on my newly installed SuSE 9.1 box and am having trouble getting the source drivers to compile. I looked over the help page and installed all the necessary tools for development. Everything installed with no problems from YaST's software update. Next I tried the following instructions from the help page:

Use the following commands to set up your development environment

example% cd <directory with the rpm file>
example% su
Password: ******
example# pushd /usr/src/linux
example# make cloneconfig

This is what I got:

computer@linux:/tmp> su
linux:/tmp # pushd /usr/src/linux
/usr/src/linux /tmp
linux:/usr/src/linux # make cloneconfig
HOSTCC scripts/basic/fixdep
HOSTCC scripts/basic/split-include
HOSTCC scripts/basic/docproc
-include /var/adm/running-kernel.make

The .config file is a merged configuration; please remove it by hand before crea
ting your own. You can use one of the files arch/i386/defconfig.* as a template.

make[1]: *** [check-meta] Error 1
make: *** [cloneconfig] Error 2

Now, I continued with the steps listed in the help document just to see what would happen, but as you can probably image it didn't pan out. Just by installing SuSE 9.1 my sound and LAN both work off the bat, which seems to be most peoples' issue. This is not mine, my issue is that some very important system devices are not being recognized, such as the memory controllers and AGP slot. Any help would be appreciated, please note that I am only a little more than a step above a noob and require semi-simple instructions.
