Unhappy Nvidia drivers and 2.6.10 not working

Hi everyone, its been a while but I am back... dunno if anyone noticed I was gone! I just moved halfway across the world and my internet access was disrupted for a while!

Anyway, I have a Abit NF7 motherboard (With the nforce2 ultra chipset) I was using the nvidia driver for my network card and it was fine until I upgraded my kernel this morning to the 2.6.10 and at the same time it won't compile the nvidia module for my graphics card either.

Has anyone else had similar problems... or has it been so long that I have made a really stupid mistake??
