Exclamation Mandrake 9.2 Problem

I've a problem configuring my Geforce FX 5900 Ultra on Mandrake 9.2 :

When I've finished installing the distribution, the X server don't start
I've downloaded the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run driver file but it doesn't install as well !! reason : no kernel source in /usr/src !
I've tried to reinstall the distribution with all developpement packages but there's still no source for the kernel
I've got an "old" Geforce 4 MX440 and with it the X server works but it's impossible to install the last NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496 driver for the same reason ( no kernel source ... )

Here is my configuration :
Processor : Intel P4C 3Ghz
Mother board : Asus P4C800 Deluxe
RAM : 2048 Mo
Graphic card : MSI FX 5900 Ultra VTD 256 ( 256 Mo VRAM )
OS : Windows XP SP1 ( works fine ) / Linux Mandrake 9.2 ( no X server )

Can anybody tells me how to :
- install / setup mandrake 9.2 distribution
- have the kernel source on /usr/src ...

Thanx for the replies !

Talking solution :

Finally I've got it !!
peoples from mandrake forgot the package :
kernel-source-2.4.22-10mdk.i586.rpm ( can be found on google )

Install it and run the driver from nvidia !
Edit the X11 config file ( /etc/X11/XFconfig-4 )
and replace nv by nvidia !

restart the X server and that's it !!

thanx to myself
