Default Problem compiling Nvidia Driver on Kernel 2.6 test2

I've tried installing the Nvidia driver with a patch from http://www.minion.de/nvidia.html. However when I try to install the driver I get the following error messages:

make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernel-source-2.6.0-test2'
CHK include/linux/version.h
make[2]: `arch/i386/kernel/asm-offsets.s' is up to date.
*** Warning: Overriding SUBDIRS on the command line can cause

The site advises that the driver will not build against Linux kernels older than 2.6.o-test3-bk5 unless the patch made available to accomodate for recent PCI name database changes (http://www.minion.de/files/NVIDIA_ke...6-2.6-bk5.diff) is reverted.
