Default Fedora Core 1 and nforce drivers

HELP!!!
I am trying to install the nvidea driver for my new computer and it has become way too complicated for me. I am trying to install this driver: NFORCE-Linux-x86-1.0-0292-pkg1.run
I have no idea what to do to get it to work. I am a Linux novice.

Many thanks
Anthony

My System:
Fedora Core 1
Kernel 2.4.22-1.2199
AMD Athlon64 3400+ 2.4ghz
Asus K8N-E Deluxe motherboard with nForce 3 chipset

I am getting the following error message:
nforce-installer log file '/var/log/nvidia-nforce-installer.log'

that the installer will need to compile a new kernel interface.

Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your
kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you have the
'kernel-source' rpm installed. If you know the correct kernel source
files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the
'--kernel-source-path' commandline option.
ERROR: Installation of the audio driver has failed. Please see the file
'/var/log/nvidia-nforce-installer.log' for details. You may find
suggestions on fixing installation problems in the README available on
the Linux driver download page at www.nvidia.com.

If it's for the audio, don't even bother. Use the in-kernel one, SO much easier/less buggy.

How do I use the in-kernel one for the audio?

They really need to open the damn code for the sound driver part of nforce. They tried, and failed to make it work for linux users, now let the linux programmers have a crack at it.

thony,
It's saying that it can't find the kernel source it needs to compile the package. Here's a link to the kernel-source package for the x86-64 kernel: http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...ates/1/x86_64/ Just scroll down untill you see "kernel-source" and install that by doing a "rpm -ivh kernel-source-kernelnamehere" (do this as root). Here's a link to the x86 kernel-source if your not using the x86-64 kernel: http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...pdates/1/i386/ .

Thanks for your help Zajelo3.
However,
I installed the kernel-source rpm, the #&@! nVidea installer still couldn't find it.
I moved the kernel source to where the installer could find it.
Now it wants another file.
I found that file.
Now it can't find the output folder..............
I GIVE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Grrrrrrr!
I'll buy a plug-and-play audio card. instead. My Fedora will probably find it and configure it.

Problem fixed, finally!
The solution was to get rid of Fedora Core 1 and go back to Red Hat 9.
Then installing the Asus (rpm) drivers that came with the motherboard
worked perfectly.
