Default Redhat Beta 8.1 / Intel HT cpu (smp). Installation impossible!

hello there,
I tried to compile the nvidia drivers (the latest version and the 3123 one).
Everytime I launch the compilation, I get the following error :

Quote:
+ install -m 0444 nvidia.o /var/tmp/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0//lib/modules/2.4.20-2.21smp/kernel/drivers/video
install: cannot stat `nvidia.o': No such file or directory
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.59450 (%install)


RPM build errors:
user buildmeister does not exist - using root
group buildmeister does not exist - using root
user buildmeister does not exist - using root
group buildmeister does not exist - using root
Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.59450 (%install)
That's if I do it from the src.rpm, that error is not really "talkative" but If I launch a make from the tar archives, I get this :

Quote:
/lib/modules/2.4.20-2.21smp/build/include/linux/highmem.h: In function `bh_kmap':
/lib/modules/2.4.20-2.21smp/build/include/linux/highmem.h:20: warning: pointer of type `void *' used in arithmetic
nv.c: In function `nv_get_phys_address':
nv.c:2182: warning: implicit declaration of function `pte_offset'
nv.c:2182: invalid type argument of `unary *'
make: *** [nv.o] Error 1
I get the very same error for both versions.
Any idea please ?
I am using Redhat 8.1 beta (rc3?) with a Asustek E7205 motherboard and Intel PIV 3,06Ghz HT CPU (thus I have a SMP kernel)

Thanks in advance,

Barlad.
