Default redhat 8 driver problems, please help!!

ok, i've downloaded the latest (i've also tried all this with the not so latest drivers) and just can't manage to install them.

i've tried building from tarballs, rebuilding the src rpms and the rpms themselves, but i always run into this unresolved symbols problem, every time. i am running redhat 8, kernel 2.4.18-14 with an nvidia geforce4 mx. here's my error...

depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.18-14/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o
/lib/modules/2.4.18-14/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o: unresolved symbol irq_stat_Rd843d721

Hint: You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible license
and it has unresolved symbols. Contact the module supplier for
assistance, only they can help you.

/lib/modules/2.4.18-14/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.18-14/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.18-14/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o: insmod nvidia failed
make: *** [package-install] Error 255

i found a thread with similar problems (but different missing symbols) and followed instructions to try and resolvce dependencies with ym kernel, but even that has failed to do anything. so please, anyone have any ideas ??
