First thing to try is to install the kernel-devel package that matches
the kernel you have installed, that would be:

  apt-get install kernel-smp-devel#2.6.14-0.10.rrt.rhfc4.ccrma

That should be enough for the Nvidia installer. But I'm not sure how
well those drivers work with the realtime preemption enabled kernels.
