I have read the tutorials, I've asked already, I still can't get it to work and the other thread seems to be dead...again.

-> No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you li
ke the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel f
rom the NVIDIA ftp site (ftp://download.nvidia.com
)? (Answer: Yes)
-> No matching precompiled kernel interface was found on the NVIDIA ftp site;
this means that the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for
ERROR: Unable to find the kernel source tree for the currently running kernel.
Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your
kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you have the
'kernel-source' rpm installed. If you know the correct kernel source
files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the
'--kernel-source-path' commandline option.
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file
'/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find suggestions
on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
driver download page at www.nvidia.com.

If anything else is needed, just ask. I REALLY want to get the drivers to work. This 800x600 crap is starting to get to me.
Having spent an ucky amount of time poking around, I've found out that I have no idea how to use the --kernel-source-path option. I link it to the directory, it says /usr/include//include/linux/kernel.h is not there. I link it to /usr/include/linux/kernel.h, it can't find the damn kernel source. I link it to just /usr/ thinking it might find it, and still soupless I am left. Double Ew Tee Ef?
