Default nvidia driver troubles

I downloaded the nvidia kernel and the glx from nvidia's site, but when I tried to build the kernel with 'make install' it gave me an unresolved symbol error. When i tried 'insmod NVdriver' I got several unresolved errors. I read on some other message board that my problem has something to do with my linux kernel version but I am not quite sure what to do to get it to work. Any suggestions?

Default Steps to install nvidia drivers on linux

This is how I installed nVidia drivers on a fresh 9.04 install(Step 1)
First grab the drivers from here put them in you /home/user folder
(Step 2)
Right Click, Terminal
Install these three applications to prepare for the driver installation

sudo apt-get install nvidia-settings binutils gcc
(Step 3)
press CTRL+ALT+F1 to take you into a non-X terminal thingy
(Step 4)
authenticate with your user account

sudo killall gdm
sudo killall openbox
sudo ./NVIDIA*
(Step 5)
Run through the installation wizard.
(Step 6)
Afterwards, reboot your GUI, enabling the drivers, by typing (thx alt-SysRq-boom!)

sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start

P.S. i <3 #!
edit: fixed reboot to gdm start
