Older Nvidia card [RIVA TNT2 Model

I have been using the Nvidia driver successfully for months, re-installing whenever I upgrade my kernel. When I upgraded to 2.6.14-1.1637_FC4, I could not re-install the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7664-pkg1.run. I know there is a newer version (1.0-7676), but my old card has been deprecated in that driver version....

When I try to install the driver, it acts as if I do not have kernel sources installed... I understand kernel-sources is now called kernel-devel... I am I doing something wrong? Overlooking something simple? I have been using this versions of the the Nvidia driver for months no real problems....
