NVIDIA intall problems on Mandy 9.2

I cannot build the NVidia drivers on the above kernel. Here's what seems to be the most relevant part of the log file:

ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.o'. This is most likely
because the kernel module was built using the wrong kernel header files.
Please make sure you have installed the kernel header files for your
kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you have the
'kernel-source' rpm installed. If you know the correct kernel header
files are installed, you may specify the kernel include path with the
'--kernel-include-path' commandline option.

I have Mandrake 9.2 I installed the kernel-source called

How can I get this thing to work??
Also this is the latest Mandrake and the latest kernel sources

Open a konsole up and type in uname -r and see if the installed kernel matches the kernel source you downloaded. If not, then you need to build a kernel with the source that you have.
