Default pre 2.4 kernel installer

Ok Ive recently thrown a copy of Debian that I had laying around onto a laptop I had. The default 'nv' driver nor the others that are defaults work for X. So I downloaded the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629-pkg1.run from nvidia.com. Everything is all fine until it says that it doesnt support pre 2.4 kernels.

The debian install that I have has a 2.2.20 kernel currently. Does anyone know a way around this or know where I could get an installer or drivers that would support an older kernel perhaps?

Debian provides newer kernels, install one of them. It would also probably be a good idea to look into upgrading to sarge or sid as they have much newer software available.
