Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've searched, and read through about every post here to try to fix this and nothing has worked.
Ok downloaded the drivers, 5328 I believe, and edited my xf86config to read "nvidia" and load "glx". When I boot up to level 3 and hit startx it just hangs on a black screen. If I let it sit for 10+ minutes it will flash the nvidia screen but then just go black again. So I have to go back and edit it back to "nv" just to get x.
Ok now when I try to load glx gears I get:
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Error: couldn't get an RGB, Double-buffered visual
When I try to load Enemy Territory it goes to a black screen with a blue text box that says something like "proper connection" when I hit enter it turns off the computer.
And here is the other important stuff. Keep in mind I have edited to read "nvidia" with no luck:
# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Mandrake 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.
AllowMouseOpenFail # allows the server to start up even if the mouse doesn't work
#DontZoom # disable <Crtl><Alt><KP_+>/<KP_-> (resolution switching)
#DontZap # disable <Crtl><Alt><BS> (server abort)
Load "dbe" # Double-Buffering Extension
Load "v4l" # Video for Linux
Load "glx" # 3D layer
