I'm not sure what the problem your having is
you get a sivsiv error when you move the mouse and screen saver stops??
if this is the case
ctrl + ALT + F1 */open a tty session/*
drop back down to init 3
# init 3
# sh ./NVIDIA-6111.run
*/ installing the nvidia drivers again/*
now very important
# vi /etc/X11/XF86config-4 */ text edit opens the config files for X/*
now just to be safe reboot
now you shouldnt have the problem anymore.
if you still do get the kernel sources for your specific kernel from your distro cds.
Mandrake has them on the paid version you have to get them from www.rpmseek.com
