Isn't you recompile the kernel ?
If you do that, you should try load redhat default for easy configuration.
xconfig load
/usr/src/linux-2.4.18-14/configs/configs/kernel-2.4.18-i686.config
ELF is a kind of executable format.
It may has other format used.
If kernel not load the supported format module, it may failed I guess.
Try default config file first for a success build expenience first.

If you compile NVIDIA driver,
you don't need recompile kernel.
But you have to include kernel source for compiling NVIDIA driver.

Driver compile and Install instruction I written :
