Default Problem with Mandrake 9.1 and nvidia drivers


I yesterday installed the nvidia graphics driveres (version 4363) for my Mandrake 9.1 system with an ELSA Gladiac 511 Geforce MX 400 grphics card. Since then I haven't been abled to boot directly to X. If I boot in failsafe mode and then choose X and networking, everything seems ok and X starts. Also, if I manually load the nvidia module by typing "insmod nvidia", the module is loaded with the following messages:

Using /lib/modules/2.4.21-0.13mdk/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o
Warning: loading /lib/modules/2.4.21-0.13mdk/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o will taint the kernel: non-GPL license - NVIDIA
See for information about tainted modules
Module nvidia loaded, with warnings

After starting in failsafe mode or manualy loading the module, everything seems to work and I can run OpenGL appliacations like tucracer.

Any hints of how to proceed? A copy of my XFree86.0.log is attached. This log is the one recorded when I try to boot directly to X.
