Angry A few glitches with MDK10.1 (I is a n00b) :S

Hi all
I'm a complete newcomer to this Linux thing. I have just installed MDK10.1official.
The first time, after installing, I carefully followed the instructions to install the NVidia driver for my FX5900XT. It stated, during the install that there was no matching kernel source available. Would I like it to go get one? Hell yeah! But it came back telling me that there was not one. So, I (wrongly) thought that this meant that I had not installed the kernel source when I chose which pkg's to install. I restarted, and this time chose packages inDUHvidually, making sure that I ticked the kernel.src thingy package.
Alas, I still get the same error :S
Do I need to update the kernel?
If so, can I do this from terminal?

I am kinda having trouble installing the helix player codec pack too. I can extract them to the correct folder no probs (as su), but I'll be slam-dunked and dipped in honey if I can find the xine.conf (or config) file anywheres. I think I need to find it in order to tell it the path to all codecs. :S

Still. This is a truly FUN learning curve It reminds me of when I was trying to fathom the ins-and-outs of M$DOS5.0 hehe.

Any help is MUCH appreciated, and if you need the exact error msg I am getting, please slap-me-an'-mail-me.

Thanks in Advance

for the nvidia drivers, you need to install the kernel source which is like 184 megs, its on the installation cds, just double check if you installed it, go through the menu bar to "Packages->installl software" and check if its still in there, if so install the kernel src 2.6.x

Thumbs up yey! that was it yes but NOW NO eth0

OOpsie I had installed the wrong kernel source. Doh!

Thanks very much

Thing is... now I have no sound and my eth0 is not connecting. This happened after I had completed the install process (properly this time) for the NVidia card

What on earth could have made that happen?

Any thoughts would be gratefully appreciated.
Thanks, again, in advance.
