Default Unable to find Headerfiles?

Im a newb to linux and this forum, so sorry in advance for stupid/already posted questions!
I just installed Mandrake Linux and want to use the tv-out function on my nvidia geforce2 mx400.
So I spent the last 6 hours finding out how to install the driver NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4363.run.
I have reached to the point where the installer says something like "Unable to find kernel headerfiles for currently running kernel. etc. etc."
I have no idea what to do, so I would appreciate any help I can get!
thx in advance!

1) check out the README included on the driver download page for a full walkthrough for your driver installation.

2) 1.0-4363 is 3 driver revisions old - the current driver is 1.0-5336.

3) You need to install your kernel sources - it should be kernel-source-*.rpm on your install media.
