Unhappy mandrake9.1+nvidia ti4200 gf4 video card

I have been running mandrake 9.1 with no problems until I decided to upgrade my video card.
This worked OK in win xp but then I tried to boot into mandrake and I just got a blank screen with 2 keyboard lights flashing at me [one was the caps lock]
I then tried a new installation both graphically and text modes but I got no further than mandrake loading to the desktop and freezing.
I am now back to my original video card and all is well.
What now-is this a driver problem?
How do I re-install mandrake with this new card.

Thanx in advance.

Nvidia produces their own drivers for their video cards, really good ones too, check over at the Nvidia site for some step-by-step instructions on that card.
