Default unable to install graphic card driver

The core of my system is Linux 2.6.35.11-83.fc14.x86_64
When trying to install Nvidia graphic card driver "NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-260.19.36.run", I keep getting the error message as follow.

ERROR: Unable to find the kernel source tree for the currently running kernel.
Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your
kernel and that they are properly configured; on Red Hat Linux systems,
for example, be sure you have the 'kernel-source' or 'kernel-devel' RPM
installed. If you know the correct kernel source files are installed,
you may specify the kernel source path with the '--kernel-source-path'
command line option.

Pls help me.

Why don't you use the nVidia driver provided from Fedora repositories: http://tinyurl.com/68q5bo4 ?

Uh, perhaps you might do exactly what the message tells you to do, and install the kernel source RPMs on your system? You can't install/build the nVidia driver without it's dependencies . . . .
