I used NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.rh90up_2.4.20_6.athlon.rpm and not the one
for the upgraded kernel.

I get messages about unresolved symbols like

/lib/modules/2.4.20-6/kernel/drivers/net/nvnet.o:unresolved symbol etc..

I've obviously made a mistake somewhere along the line so do you reckon
this is the best thing to do?
I do intend to go along to the next meeting (if I don't catch the flu
from my son).
