Problem installing Nvidia glx drivers

i just switched form SuSE to Kubuntu, was able to get some of the problems solved.

Now i am having a problem installing the drivers for the video card.

it is an Nvidia mobile go420 (or something along those lines)
the initail time i insatlled the drivers, i restarted and X11 would crash, so i restored the xorg.conf file.

i tried reinstalling the driver, which it installs fine, but when i run the "sudo" command which is on the Adept installer notification thing it says to chk the md5sum when i do those commands it asks, it still does not go. i try to edit the file manually, and it still wont work. when i change the driver to "nvidia" my X11 crashes when i restart.

Thanks for the help.

try removing the nvidia-glx you install from apt, maybe it conflicts with the nvidia drivers if you got them from
