I installed the Nvidia driver first by using yast and now i have a new program "Nvidia X server settings" whits doesn't change much. Then i downloaded the "Nvidia-Linux-x86-100.14.09-pkg1.run" file and followed the instructions by going to a console,use init 3 and "sh" and "-q" .
I have the necessary kernel-source, gcc and make installed, but the Nvidia installer complains that it can not find the kernel-source:

ERROR: The kernel header file
'/usr/src/linux-184.108.40.206-0.3/kernel//include/linux/kernel.h' does not

'/usr/src/linux-220.127.116.11-0.3/kernel/' is incorrect. Please make sure
you have installed the kernel source files for your kernel and that they
are properly configured; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure
you have the 'kernel-source' or 'kernel-devel' RPM installed. If you
know the correct kernel source files are installed, you may specify the
kernel source path with the '--kernel-source-path' command line option.

so can someone tell me where i can find my kernel-source file's ?
i tried to locate the file "kernel.h" but i don't know where i can find this.
I succeeded to instal the Nvidia driver once on the "Novel Suse 10.0" release but it had serious problem's with some raid-array so now i try with this release. So if basycally someone can say the exact path i think i am saved
It shoud be something like :
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-100.14.09-pkg1.run --kernel-source-path=/??????????
