Default Upgraded system, Drivers now cause X to Hang

I have just upgraded my old PIII 866 on a ABit BX133 to a new shiny Athlon 2000XP on a Jetway V400DB (Via KT400 Chipset).

Graphics Card is a Creative GeForce 256 Annihalator Pro DDR 32mb running at 4x AGP (I have tried running it at 1x 2x and 4x)

The only things that have changed are the mobo, chip and memory. Everything is as it was on my old system.

So I put a fresh install of Mandrake 9.1 on, downloaded all the updates (after getting my BT Voyager USB Modem going again) and reinstalled the nvidia 4363 drivers (same ran fine on the BX). Rebooted X and well, Black Screen and CPU at 100%. Boot in to console mode and run startx it bombs out with Fatal Server Error (no screens found).

fell back to the nv driver (which works) and in the log it has : Failed to add GLX Extensions (nvidia xfree86 driver not found).

What is going on, I've tried everything I can think of and I am getting nowhere. Everything else on the system is running great. However as a spent all my money on the new mobo another graphics card is not an option.

Anyone got any suggestions?

All help appreciated
