Hello every1. I'm trying hard to get my linux working..I'm a novice though, I wud appreciate any help

I have installed Redhat 8.0, but I'm unable to install the display drivers.

NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0248.rh80up_2.4.18_17.athlon.rpm got installed without any error messages.

I downloaded the following files from nVidia's website:

Following is the what I get when I type "make install" after extracting the contents of NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4180.tar

cc -c -Wall -Wimplicit -Wreturn-type -Wswitch -Wformat -Wchar-subscripts -Wparentheses -Wpointer-arith -Wcast-qual -Wno-multichar -O -MD -D__KERNEL__ -DMODULE -D_LOOSE_KERNEL_NAMES -mcmodel=kernel -DNTRM -D_GNU_SOURCE -D_LOOSE_KERNEL_NAMES -D__KERNEL__ -DMODULE -DNV_MAJOR_VERSION=1 -DNV_MINOR_VERSION=0 -DNV_PATCHLEVEL=4180 -DNV_UNIX -DNV_LINUX -DNV_INT64_OK -DNV_64_BITS -DNVCPU_X86_64 -I. -I/lib/modules/2.4.18-24.8.0/build/include -Wno-cast-qual nv.c
