Description of problem:
The closed source NVIDIA video driver was possible to install with
2.6.8 kernels such as 2.6.8-1.624 but it will not install with 2.6.9-1.667

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot kernel version 2.6.9-1.667
2. Run NVIDIA installer

Actual Results:  ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'.
 This is most likely
       because the kernel module was built using the wrong kernel
source files.
       Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for
       kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you have the
       'kernel-source' rpm installed.  If you know the correct kernel
       files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path
with the
       '--kernel-source-path' commandline option.
-> Kernel module load error: insmod: error inserting
   -1 Unknown symbol in module
ERROR: Installation has failed.  Please see the file
       '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details.  You may find
       on fixing installation problems in the README available on the
       driver download page at www.nvidia.com.

Expected Results:  The nvidia.ko kernel module should build and install.
