?
I finally got the installer to work, then this came:

No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; this means
that the installer will need to compile a new kernel interface.

I hit OK. Then this came:

ERROR: Unable to find the kernel source tree for the currently running
kernel. Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files
for your kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you
have the 'kernel-source' rpm installed. If you know the correct
kernel source files are installed, you may specify the kernel source
path with the '--kernel-source-path' commandline option.

I downloaded some rpm's off the Nvidia ftp site:

NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0248.mdk82up_2.4.18_6.athlon.rpm

NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0248.mdk90up_2.4.19_16.athlon.rpm

NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0248.rh73up_2.4.18_3.athlon.rpm

NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0248.rh73up_2.4.18_3.athlon.rpm

NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0248.rh73up_2.4.18_5.athlon.rpm

NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0248.rh80up_2.4.18_14.athlon.rpm

NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0248.rh80up_2.4.18_17.athlon.rpm

NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0248.src.rpm

NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0248.suse81.i586.rpm

Do I need to install one of those or any of those ?

BTW: What is the X-server and how do I close it to install the graphics driver ?

I want to learn to do this stuff, I want to kill windows once and for all. Thanx for any help !
