Default Fedora Core - Ti4200 - Header not found?

It says something like cannot find header or cannot recognize kernel or something... forgive me 2nd day on linux.
-currently using the generic geforce 4. tried to install Version: 1.0-4496 - Linux IA32
-Fedora Core 1
-no bios revision in /proc/driver/nvidia/cards/0 ....
-p4 2.0 @1.6B
-Asus P4PE-X
I've exited to the console and run it but this happens... Xfree86 I've downloaded... but considering that doesn't seem to be the problem, i've left out the installation of Xfree86.
Thanks for all your help in advance

You will need your kernel source package installed, you can check if you have it with:
rpm -q kernel-source

The version number of the filename returned by that command must match, exactly, the kernel you're using:
uname -r

You will also need the gcc32 package installed, check for it with:
rpm -q gcc32

Those packages are on your cds, but if you have updated with the up2date utility then you may need to download the correct matching kernel version source file from the download site: http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...pdates/1/i386/

There are two links in my sig for RPMs to install the nvidia drivers if you would like to try this instead, it may be simpler for you. In that case you need to download the RPMs that also match your kernel version exactly.

Before installing type this command to use gcc32, its necessary to avoid another error (kernel is compiled with this version, you need to use the same one):
export CC=gcc32
