Default NVIDIA GEFORCE4 TI 4200 -> linux

I have recently downloaded the 2 files
(NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4180.tar.gz and
NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4180.tar.gz )
for NVIDIA GEFORCE4 TI 4200 because the card istn't supported in my distribution (Mandrake 8.2: kernel 4.2.18mdk).
I installed NVIDIA_GLX with "make install" without any problems, but as I wanted to install the kernel-file, I received the following message:

# make install
cc -c -Wall -Wimplicit -Wreturn-type -Wswitch -Wformat -Wchar-subscripts -Wparentheses -Wpointer-arith -Wcast-qual -Wno-multichar -O -MD -D__KERNEL__ -DMODULE -D_LOOSE_KERNEL_NAMES -mcmodel=kernel -DNTRM -D_GNU_SOURCE -D_LOOSE_KERNEL_NAMES -D__KERNEL__ -DMODULE -DNV_MAJOR_VERSION=1 -DNV_MINOR_VERSION=0 -DNV_PATCHLEVEL=4180 -DNV_UNIX -DNV_LINUX -DNV_INT64_OK -DNV_64_BITS -DNVCPU_X86_64 -I. -I/lib/modules/2.4.18-6mdk/build/include -Wno-cast-qual nv.c
cc1: Invalid option `cmodel=kernel'
nv.c: In function `nv_agp_translate_address':
nv.c:2756: warning: cast from pointer to integer of different size
make: *** [nv.o] error 1

I have followed all the instructions which are suggested in the README-file, checked also out whether the XFree-version is appropriate(XFree86-4.2.0-10mdk)
thx for your endavours
