Default 6150 + SUSE 10.2 - YAST install of nvidia driver(s) not working


I have an MSI 6150... SUSE was installed with the BIOS "OnChip VGA Frame Buffer Size [16MB]" and "OnChip VGA Trap Enable [Enable]".

Single core, with kernel.

I installed x11-video-nvidia and nvidia-gfx-kmp-default packages via YAST. Re-started X.

VESA Framebuffer is still my only video option. sax2 log says:

FATAL: Error inserting nvidia (/lib/modules/ No such device
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to load the NVIDIA kernel module!
(EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Aborting ***
(II) UnloadModule: "nvidia"
(II) UnloadModule: "ramdac"
(II) UnloadModule: "fb"
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

Fatal server error:
no screens found

Similar error after a init 3 modprobe attempt.

The nvidia.ko file does exist at that location. Any thoughts?

Just getting back into linux, after a few years off... please be kind. I would rather not "do it the hard way", so posting a nvidia-installer.log is not an option now... I'm hoping someone ran into the same trouble with 10.2 (searched, with no luck)? Thanks.
