Unhappy NVIDIA 1.0-5336 fails to initialize on kernel 2.4.20-30.9

I installed the NVIDIA 1.0-5336 driver on kernel 2.4.20-8 and it worked great! Using Red Hat Network, I updated my kernel to 2.4.20-30.9 and rebooted only to be told that:

(EE) NVIDIA(0) Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable config

I re-installed the driver under the new kernel only to be told:

unable to determine the NVIDIA kernel module filename

Can anyone help?

Install driver (making sure it either compiles the new one or has one prebuilt). Verify that the module is placed in /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/video
run the command: depmod
Then try: modprobe nvidia

If you upgrade the kernel, you must upgrade your kernel source as well.

Sometimes one must do the following:

cd /usr/src/linux
cp /boot/config-2.4.22-xxxxxxx ./.config
make dep

sh nvidia-installer5336xxxxx.run -K

let us know if this work
