Unhappy Plz Help! Can't compile NVidia Kernel


I'm having a problem compiling the NVidia Driver kernel. I'm also new to Linux so I'm not too sure on anything.

These are my specs:
Distribution: Debian
Kernel: 2.4.18fd
Graphics card: Winfast Leadtek GForce4 4800SE 128MB
MB: ASUS A7N8X Deluxe (nforce2)

I downloaded kernel-source 2.4.18 of the Debian website then installed it and extracted its contents to /usr/src/kernel-source 2.4.18/

I ran --kernel-source-path /usr/src/kernel-source 2.4.18

This is the error I get.

I have attached the whole nvidia-instaler.log but here is the acutual building of the kernel module where the error occurs:
-> Building kernel module:
executing: 'cd ./usr/src/nv; make module SYSSRC=/usr/src/kernel-source-2.4.1
