NVIDIA Driver Error after Kernel Compile

Hello, all! Someone gave me Red Hat 9, and I've been reconfiguring and recompiling the 2.6.5 kernel over and over again in the hope getting it to work. I finally got it to work to the point where the only "FAILED" messages that appear on booting concern USB and Ethernet issues. However, when XServer should come up at the login, it fails. I tried running the installation of the NVIDIA driver that downloaded off of their site in the command line environment. After agreeing to the EULA, the installation simply froze.
Anyone know how to fix this?

You have to use the 5336 version of the driver for the 2.6 kernels. Earlier versions of the nvidia driver will not work with the 2.6 kernals.
