Default linux newbie having lots of trouble installing drivers

Hi,

I recently installed redhat, and it used the generic VESA driver. So i download these nVidia drivers for my GeForce 2 Go:

NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4191.i386.rpm
NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191.rh80up_2.4.18_18.8.0.i386.rpm

and i ran the command: rpm -ivh NVIDIA_kernel....

and I got the error:
"
modprobe: Can't locate module nvidia

Failed to install nvidia.o
%post(NVIDIA_kernal_(rest of file)) scriptlet failed, exit status 1.


Now i dont know the difference between rpm, srpm, and tar.

I am willing to run any installation, as long as it works.

Also, I am assuming I will have to unistall what I have done so far, but I dont know how. If anyone can help, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
