Have any suggestions for this?

Yep, but it makes me wonder how you built it for 2.4.17, since the same
problem existed there.

Grab the patch from mantel/next. It's called nvidia-pte-highmem

do rpm -i on the src.rpm, and then rpm -bp on

That will get you the source in /usr/src/packages/BUILD/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2314
cd to that directory and do patch -p1 < nvidia-pte-highmem
Then, as root, do 'make' and the module should build and install properly
