Default Slackware 10.2 rivafb support disable

Hi, I am new to Linux, and I have a GeForce FX5500 in my new Linux box (I have one now :P ). I downloaded the drivers from the site, but when I try to install it it says:

No precomplied kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you like to attempt to download an interface from the NVIDIA ftp site?

When I click Yes, it cannot find one for me and advises that the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for my kernel. I tell it to go right ahead.

Then I get this:

ERROR: Your kernel was configured to include rivafb support!

Being new to Linux I have no idea what that is, or how to disable it, as I am told I have to. Please help
