Suse 9.0 & Nforce2. RPM --rebuild?

I'm in the process of installing the nForce2 drivers from Nvidia on my Suse box, but I've hit a brick wall it seems. The instructions tell me to:
Use the following commands to set up your development environment

example% cd <directory with the rpm file>
example% su
Password: ******
example# pushd /usr/src/linux
example# make cloneconfig
example# make dep
example# popd

You can now proceed with the tar file or source RPM installation steps below, omitting the steps to become root.
I've done that fine, they ran through.
Then I get to this section
The Source RPM will create an RPM appropriate for your system. If you are using the SuSE RPM, see NOTE: SuSE INSTALLATIONS, above. To install:

example% cd <directory with the rpm file>
example% su
Password: ******
example# rpm --rebuild nforce{package name}-1.0-1.src.rpm

At this point, the SRPM will be recompiled. When this command has completed, look for a line that says:

Wrote: /usr/src/{RPM root dir}/RPMS/i386/nforce{package name}-1.0-1.rpm

This will provide you with the name and location of the new RPM. You should then install this RPM per the instructions in the Binary RPM Installation section.
Umm.. my rpm command at prompt doesn't have a --rebuild option? Does anyone know how to trigger this off? (that Note about SUSE installs is the part in the previous quote)
