Default Driver 1.0-4363 Problem

I think nVidia did a great job in the new automatic driver installer.
Unfortunately, this driver isn't work with my new GeForce4 video card.

After installing the driver and changing XFree86-4 as indicated, I receive the following error message when trying start X server:

"(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module!"

Even compiling the drivers I get the same error.

XFree86.0.log indicates that nvidia_drv.o module was succesfully loaded:

(II) LoadModule: "nvidia"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.o
(II) Module nvidia: vendor="NVIDIA Corporation"
compiled for 4.0.2, module version = 1.0.4363
Module class: XFree86 Video Driver

but connot be initialized and the it is unloaded:

(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

Follow the details about my configuration:
Video Card: GeForce4 MX440SE $MB DDR TV-out AGP VGA (PV-T17L-QTFB)
Driver Version: 1.0-4363
Distribution: RedHat 8.0 (kernel 2.4.18-14)
Video Bios Revision:

As indicated, follows in attach my XF86Config-4 and XFree86.0.log files.
Any help would be very appreciated.
