Ok I found one but it seems not to be installing in to the usr/src/linux folder. There is not even a Linux folder, please help.

what was the file name, /usr/src/linux is where it goes if it's the right file.

Hey, do it via YOU, its lots easier. Choose All installable Patches, choose NVidia drivers, and go on.
Compiling this is a pain.
