Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have searched all over for help on this, there is a ton of info out there, but none that seems to provide a solution.
So far, this is where I stand...
1) Kernel sources must be installed and configured. Usually this means
installing the 'kernel-source', 'make' and 'gcc' packages with YaST2.
Update it - if not already done - via YaST2 Online Update (YOU).
2) I log in as a root user
3) I shut down X server, by typing init 3
4) sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629-pkg1.run
5) when this ? appears,
No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you like the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel from the NVIDIA ftp site (download.nvidia.com)? (Answer: NO).
6) No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; this means that the installer will need to compile a new kernel interface. (Answer: OK)
Then I get the following error...
ERROR: The kernel header file 'lib/modules/2.6.5-7.145-default/build/include/linux/kernel.h' does not exist. The most likely reason for this is that the kernel source path 'lib/modules/2.6.5-7.145-default/build/ is incorrect. Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your kernel; If you know the correct kernel source files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the '--kernel-source-path' commandline option.
Can anyone help me out here, Not sure what to do next, and I definitely don't want to give up...Thanks
