Default Problems to Install Nvidia Driver on MDK 10

Hi Guys,

my problem seems to be very simple, but for me it's not.
I've got an Toshiba P10-554 Notebook with an intel 865PE Chipset and a GeforceFX 5600 go.
I installed Mandrake sucessfully and now i want to complete with my nvidia drivers, so that i can run may native resolution of 1280x800 (Widescreen TFT Panel).
I left the X-Server and run the *.run file from the webserver.
The installation and my problems began. The Driver says that it can't find a precompiled kernel interface. Whats this ? I have installed everything i could find whats named kernel, source 2.63.x with dragconf. But still this Problem.
What can i do ?

You need to have the kernel source on your machine to install the driver. that's what it sounds like atleast. If you know how to compile a kernel just DL the source and put it in /usr/src/ then extract it. Kernels can be found here. www.kernels.org
If the kernel you use right now is a standard kernel and does not use any funny names in it like 2.6.3 then you can just extract the source in the location I said and then try to compile the driver.
