-> License accepted.
-> There appears to already be a driver installed on your system (version: 1.0-
   7676).  As part of installing this driver (version: 1.0-8178), the existing 
   driver will be uninstalled.  Are you sure you want to continue? ('no' will a
   bort installation) (Answer: Yes)
-> No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you li
   ke the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel f
   rom the NVIDIA ftp site (ftp://download.nvidia.com)? (Answer: Yes)
-> No matching precompiled kernel interface was found on the NVIDIA ftp site;
   this means that the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for
   your kernel.
-> Performing CC test with CC="gcc-3.3".
ERROR: The kernel header file
       '/lib/modules/2.6.10.09112005.2/build/include/linux/version.h' does not
       exist.  The most likely reason for this is that the kernel source files
       in '/lib/modules/2.6.10.09112005.2/build' have not been configured.

       on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux

Another question is: In all your posts u say u need the header files? But where do they come in? where can i specify their location?
(Oh and in the header files their is a version.h ie: if i link the headers dir to 'build/' in the modules dir it starts building the module then spits out an error.. If i don't link it that way it kicks out before even trying to build the module..)

Any suggestions?

Thanx again,

Tim
