If you are using 2.2.19 (assuming slack 8) then just update to 2.4.5 in /usr/src/linux-2.4.5


make mrproper
make menuconfig
make dep
make bzImage
make modules
make modules_install
make bzlilo

You're all set, just make sure you go through the menuconfig carefully and read the help file on each option: SHIFT+?
Then try reinstalling the NVIDIA drivers.
