nvidia drivers not installing due to problems with the kernel source

I'me trying to install some nvidia drivers, but when I ru the .bin file, and specify the path to the kernel, it claims that the kernel source is wrong somehow, can anyone offer advice on how to get my hands on either the right kernel source, or prepare the kernel source that I have now so that the nvidia drivers will install.

ps: I am using kernel 2.4.21

Take a look there - he makes the kernel with the nvidia drivers compiled.
