Default Linux driver for nVidia FX 5500

I have a e-GeForce FX 5500 AGP card. I would like to use the nVidia drivers instead of the X.org nv driver. I want to display 2 screens (on 2 monitors) and the nv driver doesn't seems to like that. I'm using the 2.6.11 kernel. Unfortunately, the nVidia driver needs to compile on my machine. I have the kernel headers that go with 2.6.11, but not the source. Why does the nVidia driver look for the source code? I don't want to rebiuld the kernel, just to install video drivers. Does anyone have the prebuilt driver for this kernel? Am I doing something wrong? Please help...
