Default Mandrake 9.1 driver install

Hello all, I'm having a bit of trouble getting the drivers installed with Mandrake 9.1, KDE.

I downloaded and installed the Nvidia drivers (1.0-4363), edited the /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file. But now when I run startx, it flashes the Nvidia logo, appears to load a red X desktop for about half a second, and then goes back to the prompt. Above the prompt all I see:
Using vt 7
(II) [GLX]: Initializing GLX Extension

waiting for X server to shut down"

I'm using "startx --help" to type this message, and some OpenGL demos seem to be running fine. I think the drivers are working, but I just can't seem to get X to boot as usual.

Any ideas?
