Unhappy Goofed on my X config during installation...

Ok just so you know I'm "running" Mandrake 8.2.

Installation went smooth everything works EXCEPT my video card. I didn't choose the failsafe driver like I should have during installation so how do I go back to the X config once it's installed? Or even install the updated drivers?

Another side note I'm using a nVidia GeForce4 AGP.

Log in as root.
Enter the command: xf86config
Follow the steps and that *should* configure it properly.
