Default Driver 7174 on linux kernel 2.6.16

Has anyone been able to install the 7174 drivers on 2.6.16 (specifically, 2.6.16-1.2069_FC4). I'm using Fedora 4, and the driver fails to build with the error 'nvidia.ko failed to build' I had this problem earlier with 2.6.11 but I was using incompatible drivers (ones not designed for the legacy card which I have). The problem was fixed by simply using an older version of the drivers (7174). But, the problem is there again in 2.6.16 and isn't fixed by simply using the older version.
For kernel source, I'm using the kernel-devel package if that is any help. I've tried a few different things but nothing has worked so far.
Any ideas?

What is the highest kernel version this driver works on? I understand on 2.6.16 there are some issues ...

thats what I was thinking but I'm not sure about it, and would appreciate it if someone can confirm whether it is just an incompatibility issue with the new versions of the kernel. I've been wasting too much time on it...

I am using driver 7174 on kernel 2.6.16 (vanilla kernel on debian unstable) but I had to patch the nvidia kernel source for suspend-resume (S3 state) and for building the thing at all (a problem with conftest.sh I think, but I do not have my laptop with me to tell you more about this patch).
