Installlation problem/ graphic interface issue

Hey, I am sorta new at linux, well I am a n00b.
I just installed mandriva 2006 on an old machine at work. When i load up the machine i am brought to a black screen telling me that my graphics driver isnt the correct one and that it cant find anything to put on the screen. So my question is how do I go back and change the drive to another nvidia, because the one i set to load up with is obviously the wrong one, and now I know which is the correct nvidia to choose.

Can I change the drive through a command, or do I have to do the install all over again?

Login as root and type: drakconf. You will have to use your cursor keys to navigate/select and enter to perform the action you require.
