video4linux on Redhat

I'm trying to get my nVideo video card w/capture to capture. I've tracked
down that I need video4linux, but I'm stumped as to where to go next. I
have RedHat 7.2 fresh install.

I downloaded the video4linux2 stuff from, but the make
just is broken, complaining of missing /usr/src/linux (there's a
/usr/src/redhat). Do I need to install all the kernel sources?

I also downloaded the rivaTV driver, which purports to support my card, but
again the make fails. This time with a complaint that the header file
modversions.h shouldn't be included from /usr/include, but rather from a
kernel specific place, which also doesn't exist.
