Question Makefile:20: *** missing separator. Stop.

I tried to install the newest NVIDIA driver
for my GeForce 4 Titanium 4200 Card on my RedHat 9.0 System and encountered this: when I entered the command "make setup" it returned

"Makefile:20: *** missing separator. Stop."

Here's the makefile excerpt from line 16 to 20:
setup: install

.include <bsd.subdir.mk>

I installed the newest make-3.80 and I also tried to replace the dot on line 20 with the TAB-separator... It still won't compile it

What to do now?

Make sure you're using BSD make, not GNU make to build/install the driver.
