Radeon 9000pro & fedora 8

I have video adapter Radeon 9000pro.
Hi work well with fedora core 4 ,resolution 1600x1200.
I install fedora 8.
my screen not adjust with edge of monitor with resolution 1600x1200.
when resolution 1280x1024 ,all OK.
I update Fedora 8,update kernerl...f8,to kernerl...f8.686.
when i install "" i get:
[Message] Kernel Module : Trying to install a precompiled kernel module.
[Message] Kernel Module : Precompiled kernel module version mismatched.
[Message] Kernel Module : Found kernel module build environment, generating kernel module now.
ATI module generator V 2.0
kernel includes at /lib/modules/ do not match current kernel.
they are versioned as ""
instead of "".
you might need to adjust your symlinks:
- /usr/include
- /usr/src/linux
[Error] Kernel Module : Failed to compile kernel module - please consult readme.

hope helps!

Hi all!
Thank you DarkSun84!
I cannot change kernel2.6.23.1-49.fc8 to kernel2.6.23.1-49.fc8.686.
rpm -Uhv --replacepkgs --force kernel- not work.
but without errors.
all rpm(kernel...686,...headers...686,..devel...686) install good.
but again
