Default Slackware 9.0 again...

Hello, ive read many problems about slackware 9.0. I installed the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4363.run driver without any problems, it had to build the driver from my kernel sources. I loaded the nvidia driver with modprobe nvidia. Then I edited the XF86Config:
Code:
Section "Module"
    Load	"/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so" #also tried load "glx"
    Load        "dbe"

    SubSection  "extmod"
      Option    "omit xfree86-dga"
    EndSubSection

    Load        "type1"
    Load        "speedo"
EndSection

Section "Files"
    RgbPath	"/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"
    FontPath	"/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/local/"
    FontPath	"/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/"
    FontPath	"/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/:unscaled"
    FontPath	"/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/:unscaled"
    FontPath	"/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo/"
    FontPath	"/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1/"
    FontPath	"/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/"
    FontPath	"/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier	"Keyboard1"
    Driver	"Keyboard"
    Option "AutoRepeat" "500 30"
    Option "XkbRules"	"xfree86"
    Option "XkbModel"	"pc101"
    Option "XkbLayout"	"us"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier	"Mouse1"
    Driver	"mouse"
    Option "Protocol"    "IMPS/2"
    Option "Device"      "/dev/mouse"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier  "My Monitor"
    HorizSync   30-70
    VertRefresh 50-160
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "NVIDIA GeForce"
    Driver      "nvidia"
    BusID       "PCI:2:0:0"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Identifier  "Screen 1"
    Device      "NVIDIA GeForce"
    Monitor     "My Monitor"
    DefaultDepth 24

    Subsection "Display"
        Depth       8
        Modes       "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        ViewPort    0 0
    EndSubsection
    Subsection "Display"
        Depth       16
        Modes       "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        ViewPort    0 0
    EndSubsection
    Subsection "Display"
        Depth       24
        Modes       "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        ViewPort    0 0
    EndSubsection
EndSection

Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier  "Simple Layout"
    Screen "Screen 1"
    InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
    InputDevice "Keyboard1" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection
Then I tried to do startx, but it crashed. All I see is weird ascii/ansi chars on my screen. ctrl+alt+backspace isnt working, so I had to reboot. I checked /var/log/XFree86.0.log but it contains the same weird chars, so there is no need to post my log here.
I also tried this: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...ighlight=kt400 but that also didnt help.
[edit]hmm, my epox doesnt have a kt400 chipset. I confused it with my other mobo [/edit]

My specs: Amd Athlon XP 1900+, Epox 8rda+, Asus GeForce 4 MX440-SE
