Question Linux-x86-1.7184 compiled ok but loading failure

I download the latest driver for my Nvidia Geforce2 GTS (legacy) video card.
Compile procedure was passed with no-error, But loading the kernel module It reported:
NVRM: request_mem_region failed for 496M @ 0xe0ffffff. This can 
NVRM: occur when a driver such as rivatv is loaded and claims 
NVRM: ownership of the device's registers. 
nvidia: probe of 0000:01:00.0 failed with error -1 
NVRM: The NVIDIA probe routine failed for 1 device(s). 
NVRM: None of the NVIDIA graphics adapters were initialized! 
FATAL: Error inserting nvidia (/lib/modules/2.6.11-1.1369_FC4/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.ko): No such device
The kernel I used is the offical FC4 release version ( 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4)

I try append
"video=riva:off vga=normal"
to kernel when boot, But it's still had this error.

"/var/log/nvidia-install.log" is passed also giving apart below
