Chromium won't run on Mandrake 10.1 with new NVIDIA Drivers (GeForce FX 5200)

I have already posted on the Nvidia forms(Same form i got help to install driver) that my chromium game or my armagetron won't run every since I have installed my drivers. Before I installed the drivers Chromium worked but it was real laggy and jerky, same thing happend back when I had Red Hat 9 but when I updated drivers it fixed that. This time though it seems like it prevents the game from even working at all. I am somewhat of a newbie to Mandrake 10.1 so far I do love it once I get everything configured....Any suggestions?

My card is a GeForce FX 5200, 256 MB card. I can run games like super tux perfectly just not with open gl on or anything like that. I saw on a differnt form they told a guy to downgrade to the drivers before this one to play tux racer... how would I go about downgrading because to even install the drivers I had to edit the code in my nv.c file because my kernel was too new. Anyone know if NVIDIA is going to release any new mandrake 10.1 driversfor they will work correctly with out having to edit anything? Anyways I hope you can help me out.
