Default 96.43.01 kernel-2.6.23 Unable to load the kernel module

I'm using Fedora 8 DVD
kernel 2.6.23.1-42.fc8-i686
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-96.43.01

Desktop:
Asus A7V8X-X
AMD Athlon XP 1800+
512M RAM
120G HD
Generic NVidia MX 440 w/AGP 8x

I disables SELinux, turned off firewall and and changed init level to 3 before compiling. I installed the proper header files from DVD. I did have to use the --kernel-source-path option to tell it where the headers are. I am presently unable to get it on the internet since I have a Win-modem (I do have an external but don't want to bother with it.)
I used this same driver under Fedora 7 DVD without a problem.

nvidia-installer.log.zip is attached

update:
I tried the same media in my Dell laptop:
Inspiron 8600
Pentium M 1.4 GHz
256M RAM
60 G HD
NVidia Go 5200 w/32M

In that system it all worked fine so It looks like the problem is with Fedora 8 itself not liking the AMD Athlon XP.
I'll now take the problem up with fedoraproject.org
