Default The "make install" command keeps halting prematurely

I'm a Linux newbie and I'm trying to install NVidia's FreeBSD 1.0-6113 driver on FC2 2.6.8-1.521.stk16. The problem is that I keep getting the following error when I run the "make install" command:

Makefile:17: *** missing separator. Stop.

The contents of the Makefile are listed below:

SUBDIR= src \
lib \
x11 \
etc \

@echo "Installation of the NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver"
@echo "1.0-6113 for FreeBSD is now complete. Please update"
@echo "your XF86Config file as appropriate; see the README for"
@echo "details."

setup: install

.include <bsd.subdir.mk>

================================================== ==========

My system's specs are listed below:

CPU: AMD Athlon XP 2200+
RAM: 512MB Kingston PC2700
MoBo: MSI KT4 Ultra
Video: Pine GeForce 4 MX440-SE

I have downloaded the NVidia driver twice so far but still no luck.

This is very discouraging especially since this is supposed to be the easiest part of the installation process.

I would really appreciate some help with this.

Use the <b>Linux</b> version of the drivers, NOT the FreeBSD drivers for Fedora Linux Core 2 (aka FC2).
