Hmmm, I've downloaded and installed kernel-2.6.14-0.10.rrt.src.rpm
from the above link, but it doesn't appear in my list of installed RPMs
(which may be normal), and nvidia-installer still can't find the kernel
sources to build the new driver.

I have a sneaking suspicion that it has to do with the .bz files which
appear to be the actual source trees, but I'm not quite sure what to do
with them.

If I was rolling my own kernel from source, I'd be more familiar with the
process, but now that I'm using a prebuilt kernel (for the sake of
'simplicity'!) I'm not quite sure what to unpack where.

Thanks in advance for another guidepost to point the way!
