I hate when people say things like this.  I got one here.

/usr/src/kernels/2.6.15-1.1869_FC5-i686/include/linux/version.h

and here

/usr/src/kernels/2.6.15-1.1871_FC5-i686/include/linux/version.h

Does the Nvidia driver installer look for this exact path? The installer should.

Maybe a symlink to fool it?

ln -s target [name]

ln -s /usr/src/kernels/2.6.15-1.1869_FC5-i686   linux

might work to fool you driver package. But only if the version.h is there. It
would have to be changed with each new kernel.
