Enable CONFIG_MODVERSIONS and recompile.

Here are 2.6 ready NV drivers

http://www.sh.nu/download/nvidia/linux-2.6/

If not, try this:

1. Shut down your X and do

2. CC="gcc32" sh <NV driver.run> --add-this-kernel
(this will create the package based on your kernel). Now do

3. CC="gcc32" sh <NV driver-custom.run>
(it should install the driver, but I'm not 100% sure it will heh)
