Unhappy eVGA GeForce Video Card RH 7.2

I had to replace my old Biostar Via Chipset motherboard as the bios fan died and fried. I installed a new Biostar nVidia nForce 2 motherboard. I also replaced my old nVidia video card with an eVGA e Geforce FX 5200 AGP card with 128mb DDR. When I boot up, the X graphical interface does not come up. I run Xconfigurator and attempt to configure the correct card but it is not on the list. I've tried some of the nVidia cards on the list but the Xconfigurator still does not get me up to the X window. I would greatly appreciate some help.

then as root run the downloaded file.
Thenn in /etc/XF86Config you have to change the driver from nv to nvidia
