need help on installing nvidia driver


Hi, I'm new to amigo linux and wanted to install nvidia driver to amigo2.
I tried installing the nvidia_xxx.run, but it gives me error I think its looking kernel-header and source but I could not find kernel for the amigo2.

I tried installing the kernel from disk1 but I think its different from amigo2 now I'm lost and need your help...

please guide me on this as to where do I find the missing files I need to install the nvidia driver.

p.s
what are the bare minimum files I need to install for compiling software?

Get kernel source to match what you are runningfrom kernel.org or from slackware current if you want to upgrade.
You need:
binutils
gcc
make
perl
to compile a kernel.
To compile other software, you'll need more stuff:
kernel-headers (standard ones for your amigo/slack version)
autoconf
automake
libtool
m4
maybe flex or bison, pkgconfig, g++ -depending on what you compile. search this forum for a past posting on the topic.
