The nforce driver has to be compiled for the version of the kernel you are running. If it is a well-known version, nVidia may have compiled it already, and the compiled binary version can simply be installed. If not (for example, the kernel version is new, or you have built your own kernel) the installer will have to compile the driver to match your kernel.

To do that you need to download the kernel-source package that matches the kernel you downloaded. You will also need a C compiler, but I assume that your distribution includes one. Download and install the kernel-source, then try the re-install of the nforce driver again.
