Default "NVIDIA X Server Settings" Menu Item Exits to Login Screen

Hi:

I am using SimplyMepis 6 (kernel 2.6.15-26-386) on an Anthlon 64 dual core computer. I downloaded and installed this driver NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9629-pkg1.run and all seemed to go well.

I have a couple of problems.

Firstly, there is installed on my Start->System submenu an item called "NVIDIA X Server Settings". When I click on it, my monitor switches quickly from black to many jumbled colors and then I get exited to my KDE login screen. This leads me to believe that there is something wrong with my settings (and perhaps they are not being used at all).

Secondly, I am trying to use aixgl and beryl. When I type beryl into a terminal, all the title bars on the open windows freeze and I can't move them around or close them (by clicking on the x) in the title bar, although I can type into them and click with the mouse.

Are these problems related?

Sorry but I don't know much about video. I have been working with Linux for about 4 years but I am an accountant and not a programmer.

Can anyone help me? My xorg.conf file is attached.

Many thanks.

Regards,
Bill Dika
