GCC ver. mismatch for NV driver...

I tried to "make install" the NVIDIA binary drivers on slack nine to enjoy some smooth gaming, and while everythng worked in slack 8 and 8.1, we have a problem now...

"/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver: The module you are trying to load (/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver) is compiled with a gcc
version 2 compiler, while the kernel you are running is compiled with
a gcc version 3 compiler. This is known to not work.
/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver failed
/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver: insmod NVdriver failed
make: *** [package-install] Error 255"

Is it possible to still somehow FORCE the driver to load and just MAKE it work
