Default NVIDIA KERNEL Problem

Today is the first day I have ever used linux. Installed Mandrake 9.0 on my Dell 8200 which has a Geforce 4. However as everyone knows the video doesn't work. So I download the patch and execute. Selected Geforce4 and 1024x16bit in XFdrake, closed, then typed startx. It opens and everything is great. I then reboot and get an error that says:

failed to initialize the nvidia kernel module!
Screens found but none have a usable config
Fatal error no screens found
XIO Fatal io 104 connection reset by peer on X server...

So I have no idea what I am doing, I got it to work again by reinstalling, but once i reboot, it stopped working again. What do I need to do? Thanks in advance. IM me if you know how to fix this JJacob983
