Let me know what kernel version you are using. You can find that with the command:
cat /proc/version
You probably don't have the right kernel version for that driver if you're running RedHat9 and have upgraded. And if you're running Fedora Core, you definitely don't (RH and Fedora are actually different so I'm assuming a little here).
If you post your kernel version, it'll help clarify things.

In any case, the answer is this.
Use this rpm instead. It is a source rpm, which you can create a new one for your kernel with. Download the file, then rebuild it with the command given. When you finish this (and if it doesn't say "Error" on some of the last few lines, it worked. You'll see a line up about 10-12 lines, saying "Wrote: /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.athlon.rpm"
You want to install that RPM instead of the above you posted. Remove the other one first.
rpm -e NVIDIA_nforce
cd <directory containing the .src.rpm>
rpmbuild --rebuild NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.src.rpm
rpm -ivh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.athlon.rpm
