Installing NVidia Geforce7300 in 2.4.21 kernel


I have been trying to install an nvidia graphics card for my Redhat enterprise linux version 1. I used the driver driver. But when I start the XServer I am getting a yellow screen with vertical lines and the OS freezes after that.

Can someone help in fixing this issue.
