i'm having the same trouble see if this helps...
open a terminal and type rpm -qa | grep -i kernel.. that should list all of the kernel software installed
uninstall all but kernel- (goto menu/system/configuation/packaging/remove software.
type in kernel hit seach button then remove.. then go here to download kernel-source-2.6-2.6.11-6mdk install this after in downloads.
then run the nvidia-linux file as per nvidia

I used kernel-source-2.6-2.6.11-6mdk
I had kernel-source-2.6-2.6.11-12mdk

The difference in versions if because kernel updates are not automatically installed in Mandriva, whereas the kernel-source package is automatically updated when you run MandrakeUpdate.

To update to the latest kernel do:

urpmi.update -a
urpmi kernel

Then reboot

That's right, you have to make the versions of kernel and kernel-source match. It might be the problem of our urpm sources, which just don't carry the newest kernel version for whatever reasons. The newest version of kernel I can get is also, however the newest version of kernel-source is 2.6.11-12mdk, apparently that's 6mdks of difference there! :) So, you need to grab kernel-source-2.6.11-6mdk instead, which is provided by Dsoyertoy's post, I stole the URL here for your convenience:

Everything will be fine afterwards based on my experience. By the way I did update local urpmi.cfg.
