Question RH7.2 (2.4.9-34) install + src.rpm problem

I have some problems in installing the NVIDIA drivers. I use RH7.2 with latest RH kernel-update (2.4.9-34). Based on NVchooser I selected;
* NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-2960.i386.rpm
* NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2960.rh72up.i686.rpm
When checking on dependencies, I get following error message;

Found 0 source and 2 binary packages
Dependency problem:
kernel is needed by NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-02960.rh72up

I assumed this to be related to my new kernel, so I thought to give it a try by installing the NVIDIA kernel via the source rpm's. So I downloaded;
* NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2960.src.rpm
Following the instruction in the readme file, I enter;

rpm --rebuild NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2960.src.rpm

Then I get the error message;

NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2960.src.rpm: No such file or directory

I checked on typos several times, but using ls with the same text shows the file-name so I am not making a typing error. I am running all of above as root so rights should be OK. In a desperate mood I have also copied the src.rpm file to /usr/src and tried there but without luck either.

Now I do not know how to continue. Searching in this forum as well as with Google has not bring me a bit further. So after approx. 3 hours of reading, trying, searching and trying again I must lay down to get some sleep and hope that somebody can help me further with my installation problem.

Thnx in advance for your help!!!
