How about a error message and/or a logfile?

The Kernel 2.6.22 was changed a Bit, You will find no config.c in /usr/src/linux/include/linux anymore.

Until 2.6.18 ( with this Kernel it is included ) this File is aviable.
Because the config.c is a redirection to autoconfig.c - you could copy this File
from a 2.6.18 or other a bit older Version to your 2.6.22 sources and try to restart the NVIDIA...xyz.rum File.

Take a look at /var/log - you should see the nvidia installer errorlog - the config.h/c File should be missed in your first Try.

I have tested this 3 Days ago on an other Computer - i hope the Paths "in my Brain" are 100% correct - if you have Trouble with it - reply... .

Testsoft/hardware on my Side: TNT2 - AMD2500+ with Suse 10.3 beta2 and Suse´s
Kernel of the Day ( 2.6.22-5 ) from last week.
The File config.c was found in my Suse 10.2 installation.

The nvidia Programmers should change the legacy drivers ?
( if this was done already - excus .. )
The File config.c ( or config.h ?) is included only for compability and outdated.

nvidia legacy driver Version 7184 was used - on my Side - i hope to remember correct.

Sorry for my bad English
