nvidia driver freezes X

my problem is:

after installing 7676 nvidia drivers (for my geforce2),
nvidia splash is showing (so as its said in installation howto
everything was done properly), but my kde freezes just on
startup (exactly when 'restoring session'). what may be the
problem? i was looking for the answer on the forums, so
i know that im not the only person who has this problem,
but i havent found any sollution to this.
im running slackware 10.1
thanks for any suggestions.

Can you find any errors in the X log file? Recent Nvidia modules need a 2.6.12+ kernel version or there will be some errors with NVRM in the log.

The current drivers don't support your video card. Look around for some older ones, I think 7174 are the most recent that support the Geforce 2 series.
