Ok, did it:
something else strange:

ERROR: The kernel header file '/usr/src/linux-2.4.21-4/include/linux/modversions.h' does not exist. The most likely reason for this is that the kernel header files in
'/usr/src/linux-2.4.21-4/include' have not been configured.

I looked into modversions.h on another machine with original installation and the whole contents turned out to be:
#include <linux/modsetver.h>
so I copied it on the machine in question and voila:

Installation of the NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86 (version: 1.0-4496) is now complete.

thank you both a lot !!! Tomorrow I will test it (done this on remote to the machine).

Strange, modversions.h should have been generated by the procedure above.

I've testet the driver now:
everything is working fine (confusions of console mode after using X are gone now, in contrast when using Driver "nv" )!
For anyone interested in the XF86config for
a Dell Inspiron i8500 (GeForce4 4200 Go) see the attached file.
