Default Why won't drivers build against second kernel

I loaded my nvidia drivers from a tar file on my kernel-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl.One of my up2date downloads installed a kernel-doc-2.4.22-1.2188.nptl.I booted into the new kernel and the networking was down so I used the same tar files to "make" and "make install" but--------

I cannot install my nvidia drivers on this kernel. The driver directions say "unresolved symbols" are the result of missing or wrong kernel source or a bad symbolic link in usr/src.When I boot into kernel-2.4.22-1.2188.nptl. I run rpm -qa | grep kernel and get this

[root@localhost root]# rpm -qa | grep kernel
kernel-doc-2.4.22-1.2188.nptl
kernel-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl
kernel-source-2.4.22-1.2188.nptl
kernel-utils-2.4-9.1.101.fedora
kernel-2.4.22-1.2188.nptl
kernel-pcmcia-cs-3.1.31-16
[root@localhost root]#

So I do have my kernel source installed.Next I checked my symbolic link in usr/src and get

[root@localhost root]# ls -l /usr/src/linux-2.4
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 24 May 9 12:08 /usr/src/linux-2.4 -> linux-2.4.22-1.2188.nptl
[root@localhost root]#

So it is pointing to my new kernel I am running and booted in.

So I try one more time I get "unresolved symbols" when running "make" and then "make install" on the untarred nvidia drivers.The script looks like this

[root@localhost root]# cd Desktop
[root@localhost Desktop]# make
