sax2: ups lost card....

when I tried to run sax to setup my nvidia card it gave me something like

sax: ups lost card during probing... abort

i've been googling and found nothing really helpful. I don't know much about linux, I just got kde working, before all I had was the command line.
I have the nvidia driver installed but when I type sax2 -p i get this

Chip: 0 is -> Intel i845 00:02:0 0x8086 0x2562 PCI i810
Chip: 1 is -> NVidia GeForce FX 5500 01:04:0 0x10de 0x0326 AGP nv

This is interesting because my nvidia card is in a PCI slot.

When I tried to use sax or yast to configure these it just loads a screen with a big black X for the cursor and then shuts down. I want to disable the Intel graphics and fix the Nvidia setting and set it as the default graphics card, but this is really difficult if I can't open any of the problems to do it with.

Is there anyone that is experienced with this problem or knows a solution I can use that will actually work. I don't have the internet on that computer yet so trying the online update straight through the nvidia website isn't an option. I'll try tweaking a few things myself but i doubt i'll have any success.

I appreciate any help/advice I can get
thanks very much and merry Christmas
