Mandrake 10.0 64-bit nvidia driver problems

I am current using Mandrake 10.0 64-bit and the 2.6.3-11 mandrake kernel that came with the distribution. I am trying to install the nvidia video driver for my 6800 GT. When I first run the installer, it gives me an error about the rivafb module conflicts with the nvidia driver, so I found it and removed all instances of it from my system. It then complains that I need to run "make mrpropper" in my kernel source directory, after I do that it complains about my kernel source not matching my installed kernel. I am not sure how this could be, I have not modified anything from the distribution and using "rpm - q -a" shows that I have the 2.6.3-11 kernel and source installed. Has anyone seen this and know what the issues is. I have also tried the nvidia platform drivers and the seem to work fine. I have also attached the log from the nvidia installer.

I updated my kernel to 2.6.3-19 with the same problems. I then tried to run the installation utility with --add-this-kernel and it gave me an error about not being able to find linux/syscalls.h. I commented out the line and it seems to work to fine. Is this bad???
