Problems installing drivers


my Conectiva doesn't recognize my Geforce 4 video card. Then I downloaded the drivers:
NIVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191.tar.gz
NIVIDA_GLX-1.0-4191.tar.gz

And I did:
tar -zxvf NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123.tar.gz
tar -zxvf NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-3123.tar.gz
cd NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123
make install
_________________________________________________
When I accomplished "make install", errors happened:

In file included from nv-linux.h:24,
from nv.c:14:
usr/include/linux/modversions.h:1:#error Modules should never use Kernel-headers system headers,
usr/include/linux/modversions.h:2:#error but headers from an appropriate kernel-source
___________________________________________________
Whats the problem? How can I fix it? Pls someone help me....

do you have the kernel source? (check /usr/src) if not, you will have to install it.

I know why those errors are happening, but maybe you need to run configure and make before make install. Are you running as root?
