Hardware Mass Murderer
Re: cannot install kernel (unable to install drivers)
you need to install the kernel sources for your kernel. even though you have a kernel, you need the source code in order to compile things. your current kernel is in binary format. in order to get these sources, you will most likely want to do it in the manner in which madriva wants you to. i could show you how to do it the manual way, but it has a high possibility of breaking a lot of stuff.
if your linux distro has a package manager (for example if it uses .rpm files), then look for a kernel source package and install it.
good luck, hope that helped.
