Unhappy Gf4 Mx 440

I changed my VGA card (I had a TNT2) and now I have GF4 but X won't start. Is there any solution for me except reinstalling XFree?

Either switch the Driver back to vesa or install the newest Nvidia Drivers. The GF4-Cards can't be handled by the nv Driver of the original Debian-Distro.

For Switching back to Vesa, try dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86 as root
