Default Help With Nvidia Installer Please

I am running Debian v3 with a 2.4.18-bf2.4 kernel. I am somewhat of a newbie to Linux but used Unix in college so I know my way around the console. I build the kernel with the following commands;

make config
make dep
make bzImage

Then I rebooted the machine. The installer got as far as almost done building the driver using the same source files I used to build the new kernel but at around 90% it errored and exited saying that it couldnt build the nvidia.o file because it was supposedly using a source other than what was used to build the kernel. I used the --kernel-source-path=XXX to tell it where the proper source files were. Did I install the new kernel properly or was there something I missed?

Thank you for any help afforded!

Did you update lilo/grub? Type uname -r to get your current kernel version and make sure it matches the name of the source tree.

You didn't build any modules?? :S Was this intentional or did you forget?
