Exclamation I can't get the latest driver to upgrade

I've upgraded my kernel in Mandrake 9.2 to kernel 2.4.22-26 and loaded the kernel-sources but I can't get the new NVidia drivers to install.
Here's the log file, the kernel source path points to the right place and the source is there but it still fails.
Has anyone suceeded with this kernel or have any ideas what's going wrong?

this means that the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for

no help here because I'm getting the same error and now I can't go back to the 4* driver.
