Unhappy Can't build on RH9 2.4.20-20.9

I've been unable to successfully build the nVidia Linux drivers on a RH9 system with stock kernel 2.4.20-20.9.

The system is a Netvista 2292:
P4 1.8 GHz
1024 Mb memory

I do have the kernel-source package installed. According to the log file (attached), it seems to build (with warnings), but has unresolved symbols when it's loaded:

Kernel module load error: ./usr/src/nv/nvidia.o: unresolved symbol
__global_cli
./usr/src/nv/nvidia.o: unresolved symbol smp_call_function
./usr/src/nv/nvidia.o: unresolved symbol tqueue_lock
./usr/src/nv/nvidia.o: unresolved symbol __global_save_flags
./usr/src/nv/nvidia.o: unresolved symbol __global_restore_flags
./usr/src/nv/nvidia.o: unresolved symbol smp_num_cpus
./usr/src/nv/nvidia.o:

I'm stumped. Is there another package of libraries or a development package I'm missing?

Oops, forgot to mention:

It's a RIVA TNT2 AGP card. The machine is a refurb so I don't have all the details, but it appears to have 16Mb of memory. The nVidia chip on the card says:
