Exclamation failed to initialize kernel module

warning: im somewhat of a newbie to linux.

i downloaded the newest nvidia drivers so i could run games that need opengl/glx stuff. the install script ran fine and i changed the xf8config-4 file, but when i try and start my xserver i get:
"(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module!
(EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Aborting ***
(II) UnloadModule: "nvidia"
(II) UnloadModule: "vgahw"
(II) Unloading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libvgahw.a
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

Fatal server error:
no screens found
" and the xserver wont load. If i change my xf86 config settings back, it returns to loading normally.

Background info:
Video card: riva tnt2
Computer: Dell Dimension 8100 1.3ghz, 256 MB RAM.
NVIDIA driver installation file:

I have included my xf86 error log and my xf86ocnfig-4 file in the attached file

Does anyone know what the deal is here?

Thanks a million.
