Default Bad bad graphics driver problem! please help!

Ok.. cpu specs: 128mb ram, 800mhz p3, 40gig hd partition, geforce4 mx420 64mb card.
I recently installed Debian 3.0, and wanted to configure it for my graphics card. I did nvchooser, then downloaded the drivers it told me to download (the 4191). I unpacked and installed the GLX driver with no problem, but the NVIDIA_kernel one gave me this error:
In file included from nv.c:14:
nv-linux:24: /linux/modversions.h: No such file or directory.
make: *** [nv.o] Error 1
People told me i need the kernel source, so i got the source, and when i tried installing the source, i messed up along the lines. How do i uninstall anything i installed for that, so i can start over? Also, if that isn't the problem, then does anyone know what is?
Also, ive checked the documentations and followed everything step for step. If someone knows what to do can they please guide me through a little?

You must first install the kernel-headers according to your kernel version, as an example : kernel-headers-2.4.18-bf2.4.
You must now have a directory called /usr/src/kernel-headers-2.4.18-bf2.4 or something like that.
Now edit the file /usr/src/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191/Makefile or wherever u put it and change the line:
KERNINC=/usr/src/linux/include
by
KERNINC=/usr/src/kernel-headers-2.4.18-bf2.4/include
or the correct path for kernel headers

now make install should work

good luck...

I have written a article about the procedure, especially read the important section!, which will tell you about how to avoid problems with APIC.
