Default Problems with Mandrake and NVidia drivers.....

I'm a long time Windows User and a Linux Ultra-Newbie....running a dual-boot with Windows ME and Linux Mandrake 8.2

I'm having a really wierd problem with Mandrake 8.2 and the Nvidia drivers, trying to run a GeForce4 Ti 4200 this is what i did...

1. got
2 downloaded the right RPMs, installed them...
3 Configured XF86Config-4
4 ran xf86cfg to be sure everything was set,
5 rebooted into X


Nothing Happened.

I checked to make sure the Nvidia Driver and AGPCart was set up in Modules.conf, rebooted X again and still nothing.

No NVidia Logo.
No Open GL.
Just normal Xwindows.

Im confuzed as to how the heck this could have happened, since everything is configged right. Ive cant play TuxRacer, or run $glxinfo or $glxgears...something has to be wrong. I dunno how to post my XF86Conf-4 file, but this is what happens when i try to run $glxinfo and $glxgears

[root@localhost root]# glxinfo
name of display :0.0
Xlib: extention "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extention "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".

[root@localhost root]# glxgears

Error: Couldn't get an RGB, Double-Buffered Visual

Anyone know what to do here, or how to post my XF86Config-4 file?
