    I have no problem myself.

    I use the driver *.run files that have been patched to work with 2.6

    I don't have to build a thing, I just install them like I would under
    kernel 2.4.

    If you look at the minion website, there is a mirror in the download
    list, and that mirror has install packages modified for 2.6.

    It's completely automatic.

    Maybe you should try that.

    It will fail when it goes to the nvidia website to find precompiled glue
    code, and then proceed to build the glue locally.
