Default Nvidia driver & Debian

I just install my system and try to install the latest nvidia driver.
I have run sh NVIDIA.......run and the setup told me he cannot find a precompiled verison of a kernen.....and he ask to download 1 from the nvidia site...I say YES and he cannot fidn 1.

is there any way to install the driver without getting and compile a new kernel?? I use bf24 now!!

bf24 IIRC is based on 2.4.18. Also, IIRC, the nVidia binary driver if custom 'compiled' will need to link against some kernel headers. Do you have the kernel source for the bf24?
