NVidia Nforce drivers and Mandrake 9.2 64 bit

So I download the tar.gz nforoce driver from the nvidia site, and when I issume make it tells me this...

make -C  nvnet
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/user/nforce/nvnet'
cc -c -Wall -DLINUX -DMODULE -DEXPORT_SYMTAB -D__KERNEL__ -O2 -Wstrict-prototypes -Wno-trigraphs -fno-strict-aliasing -fno-common -fomit-frame-pointer -pipe -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 -march=i686 -DMODULE -DCONFIG_PM -falign-functions=4 -I/lib/modules/2.4.22-25mdk/build/include   -DMODVERSIONS -include /lib/modules/2.4.22-25mdk/build/include/linux/modversions.h nvenet.c
cc1: error: CPU you selected does not support x86-64 instruction set
cc1: error: CPU you selected does not support x86-64 instruction set
cc1: error: -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 is not between 4 and 12
make[1]: *** [nvnet.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/user/nforce/nvnet'
make: *** [nvnet_make] Error 2
It seems as though it doesnt think that I have a 64 bit chip in. Has anyone had this problem? I couldn't find info on it and I have searched a lot. Thanks for any help.
