how to add driver?

i just download the new nforce driver(NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.rh90up_2.4.20_9.athlon.rpm). and i want to add the nvnet and nvaudio driver to my kernel.
i use this command:
rpm -Uvh NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.rh90up_2.4.20_9.athlon.rpm
but the result, it create a new folder in
"/lib/module/.../driver/net/(somethin i forgot)."
instead of adding the driver to my kernel.
