Kernel Panic FC5 2.6.17 when running with Geforce fx 5200

I have an Asrock P4I45GV R5.0 motherboard, and a Nvidia Geforce fx 5200 videocard. My linux runs well with the included in motherboard videocard, but when I try to load it with the Geforce, I get a kernel panic. I recompiled my kernel, and upgraded it to 2.6.17, but the problem remained the same. Also downloaded the nvidia drivers from, but they are made only for kde.So, after installing them I can't acces my kde with my included videocard, and I get the same error: "Kernel panic -not syncing: attempted to kill init" when loading FC with the Geforce videocard. tell me please how to uninstall the geforce drivers or how to run linux with my Geforce fx 5200.

Dear dracuss,
I don't know exactly what to tell you, but if you want to install the nvidia driver and can get into gnome, i'd try the following code (I believe this is currect)

 yum install kernel-module-nvidia-$(uname -r)

This should allow you to use yum to install the current version of the nvidia driver for your kernel. Just a thought.
