Default Again Fedora Core 3 and GeForce

I appologize for starting a new thread, but I could not find any solutions to my problem. I tried everything I could think of.

I just installed FC3 on my Dell Inspiron 8600 and I am having a hard time installing the NVIDIA driver. I have been reading the threads on this forum, but most of them are fixes in the Xorg file. I cannot install the driver itself. When I start the NVIDIA installer it tells me I do not have precompiled kernel, even though I installed the kernel.src.rpm.

[root@localhost ~]# cd /usr/src
[root@localhost src]# ls
linux-2.6.9 linux-2.6.9.tar.bz2 redhat
[root@localhost src]# cd redhat
[root@localhost redhat]# cd SOURCES
[root@localhost SOURCES]# ls

here it list a whole bunch of config and patch files

So after the installer complains about my kernel I get :

"The kernel header file /lib/modules/2.6.9-1.667/build/include/linux/modversions.h does not exist. The most probable reason is that /lib/modules/2.6.9-1.667/build/include have not been configured"

I also tried installing trough yum:
[root@localhost ~]# yum install nvidia-glx kernel-module-nvidia-`(uname -r)`
Setting up Install Process

but there I get :

--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: missing dep: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.724_FC3 for pkg kernel-module-nvidia-2.6.9-1.724_FC3

Could anyone please help? I don't know what else I need to do. I don;t see why all this is so complicated in fedora, when most distros support the NVIDIA chip out of the box, and I did not have any problem setting this up on RH 9
Thank you

Most people (myself included) find this to be the best way to install the nVidia drivers.
