Thumbs up Gforce4 MMX40-Mandrake 10 official-problem with nvidia driver-not loaded_SOLVED !!!!!

I can't use Nvidia drivers.
After the installation I can't start X-Windoes.
I have to uninstall NVIDIA-Kernel and NVIDIA-glx packets and to reconfiure XFREE86 to use the "nv" driver. After the X-Window system works.
I tried also using the driver from nvidia site .... but I had the same problem.
Also, I can't figure if there will be any difference in the performance of the system using the Nvidia driver.
Please help.
Thank you.

As an ATI user Im not totally sure on the nvidia drivers, but if its the same as the ATI ones the default ones are fine for desktop use but the ones from nvidia have better 3d acceleration. If your not planning to play 3d games then the normal ones will be fine.
