Default FC 5 and gfx driver - missing kernel rpm

Hey, i'm using FC 5, just downloaded nvidia gfx drivers, and i can't instal them. It says to me that i don't have kernel packages [ i did instaled kernel-dev rpms]. What i should do now, and what path to this packges?

My fedora is just after instalation, just with yum update turned on couple minutes ago.

Sorry for beeing so newbe, but thats my first time on linux, and i hardly understand what's written in other posts.

I got the same problem, I added (using yum) the dev kernel package and the pkconfig and one other package and now it builds the kernel but then faults out with some error I have to go dig up from a log file. This used to work so much better in earlier FC releases.
