Question NVIDIA problem

I need help to configure NVIDIA hardware with Linux Red Hat 8.0.
I am installing Red Hat 8.0 (Psyche) kernel 2.4.18-14 on an i686, in a Toshiba Satellite 5105-s501.
Everything was ok but the Xserver installation.
I downloaded from www.nvidia.com the Video adapter driver NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4191.i386.rpm and the kernel module NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191.rh80up_2.4.18_18.8.0.i386.rpm.
The kernel installation rises this error: cant't find nvidia module. error installing nvidia.o.
What shall i do?

Thank you in advance

You've downloaded the incorrect NVIDIA_kernel RPM. Please download and run NVchooser.sh to determine which RPM is appropriate for your system. Further details and install instructions are available in the README.

Download the source.rpm's and do a (in runlevel3)

rpm -e NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191
to remove them (If it installed but bad)

Then do rpm --rebuild NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191.src.rpm

install the rebuild rpm that are in the Wrote directory.

Then do rpm --rebuild NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4191.src.rpm

And install the rebuild GLX rpm again.

Like Andy Mecham said read the readme file for good information
