NVIDIA Driver question

Hey, I just got Mandriva 2006 and am trying ton install nVIDIA advanced graphics drivers and when I go to install it, the installer says it was "Unable to find Kernal Source Tree for currently running Kernal" Anyone know what's wrong and/or how to fix it?

you can download the latest drivers for NVIDIA cards from their website

thats usually the best route

remember you need to drop out of X first in order to be able to install them though
