      kernel-source-2.4.18.SuSE-35

      I found it be searching for "kernel" in yast2

      normaly you just need to activate the 3d support in sax and it will tell you
      that it will be downloaded automaticly the next time you call YOU (yast
      online update)

      if that doesn't work, thats may a problem of the nvidia server, see that url
