Sounds like you are using the 2.4.31 kernel.
A compile of the 2.6.xx kernel maybe in order

That had crossed my mind (and it'll probably end up being the case) but according to Nvidia the 2.4 kernel should be okay.

i'd also really like to use a 2.4 kernel to test a few things.

Try installing the nVidia driver with the --force-tls=classic option.
Code:
./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8178-pkg1.run --force-tls=classic

i've never had a problem with the fx5200 with either stock or personal kernels.

so i just ran the installer as usual and editted xorg.conf.

i can post that if it helps...

Same with me.
I have 2.4.31(the one that ships with slack 10.2) kernel and a GeForce 2 MX card.This what I did:

as root
$sh nvidia_driver.run
$xorgconfig
as user
$xorgconfig

Try this and post what happens.

bit of a tricky one. i would recommend resotring the back up of xorg.conf that nvidia made and then just changing the bit that says '"driver" "nv" to nvidia"

not sure about kernel version. doesnt say it doesnt work with 2.4.x

Attempt the "./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8178-pkg1.run --force-tls=classic" thing. For some reason the Nvidia drivers want to link against the libs in /lib/tls even when you are using 2.4. this obviously will not work.

Either upgrade to 2.6 or install the nvidia drivers with that command.

Make your /etc/X11/xorg.conf DEVICE section look like that and this will go away.(after a restart)
