device manager, in SUSE, is called 'SUSE hardware tool' when you hover the cursor over the icon, or 'SUSEplugger' when you actually enter the program. I get the feeling it might be specific to SUSE. It just displays all the hardware detected on the system and allows you to configure it or look at the details.

As for your driver installation problem, have you installed the glibc-devel RPM?

Thanks...I've tried that one and now I get a new error (the log is below). Looks like I installed the wrong version or something and it doesn't match the compiled kernel.

My kernel source is definitely the same as my compiled kernel. Would a solution to this be to re-compile the kernel? or is that a bit overboard? :-D

       you either have configured kernel sources matching your
       kernel or the correct set of kernel headers installed
       on your system.
       
       If you are using a Linux 2.6 kernel, please make sure
       you have configured kernel sources matching your kernel
       installed on your system. If you specified a separate
       output directory using either the "KBUILD_OUTPUT" or
       the "O" KBUILD parameter, make sure to specify this
       directory with the SYSOUT environment variable or with
       the appropriate nvidia-installer command line option.
