The "make install" command keeps halting prematurely
I'm a Linux newbie and I'm trying to install NVidia's FreeBSD 1.0-6113 driver on FC2 2.6.8-1.521.stk16. The problem is that I keep getting the following error when I run the "make install" command:
Makefile:17: *** missing separator. Stop.
The contents of the Makefile are listed below:
SUBDIR= src \
@echo "Installation of the NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver"
@echo "1.0-6113 for FreeBSD is now complete. Please update"
@echo "your XF86Config file as appropriate; see the README for"
My system's specs are listed below:
CPU: AMD Athlon XP 2200+
RAM: 512MB Kingston PC2700
MoBo: MSI KT4 Ultra
Video: Pine GeForce 4 MX440-SE
I have downloaded the NVidia driver twice so far but still no luck.
This is very discouraging especially since this is supposed to be the easiest part of the installation process.
I would really appreciate some help with this.

Use the <b>Linux</b> version of the drivers, NOT the FreeBSD drivers for Fedora Linux Core 2 (aka FC2).
