RH9 Nub trying to install NVIDIA display drivers

hello =P

im running linux red hat 9, and im trying to install the Nvidia display drivers.

now in the readme it tells me to cd into the nvidia_kernel directory. i do that and then type make install

according to the readme, that should word, but i keep getting this:

You appear to be compiling the NVIDIA kernel module with
a compiler different from the one that was used to compile
the running kernel. This may be perfectly fine, but there
are cases where this can lead to unexpected behaviour and
system crashes.

If you know what you are doing and want to override this
check, you can do so by setting IGNORE_CC_MISMATCH.

In any other case, set the CC environment variable to the
name of the compiler that was used to compile the kernel.

*** Failed cc sanity check. Bailing out! ***
make: *** [gcc-check] Error 1

i am a total nub so i dont know how to go about "setting IGNORE_CC_MISMATCH"

any help here would be hot .

When exactly do you insert this line? Before the selected pkg..after the selected pkg? By it self?
Maybe you could be a little more specific.
