Mandrake 9.2 and Nvidia drivers...

I have recently moved over to mandrake 9.2 from 9.1,
i have installed the lastest drivers and when i boot up with the nvidia drivers in XF86config-4 (saying "nvidia" rather than "nv") and i am presented with a black screen, with no acces to any of the other terminals. I no it isnt a problem with the graphics card because the drviers and the card work with no problems when i was using mandrake 9.1. I have also got the matching kernel source code rpm and installed.

If anyone has any ideas at all i will be very greatful.

Thanks for your time
