Hey, im new to linux in general, but am fairly competent with computers. Im having a problem getting compiz/desktop effects to work in F9..... ive tried the new driver from nvidia, and it says that it cant compile a new kernel because its missing the source-header files. ive also tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers from the livna repo, all to no avail. Has anyone had this problem or know how to fix it?
Comp is Dell XPS Gen2 Pentium M 2ghz, 2gb ram, nvidia 6800 go

Thanks for your help :)
