Default Re: Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'

Well I fall victim of this module problem when I try to startX.
attached are my logs.
I've tried installing the equivalent of what's listed in the Red Hat installation guide (running Mandriva 2007 Spring Free), but I don't know what else to try. The attached bug report is from when I tried a legacy MX 4000 card, and the install log is from the newer FX 5700 card that I tried with the newest driver, thinking that would help things. No go. Both had the exact same error.
This installation of mandriva is actually an upgrade (I know, I've already slapped my wrists) from 2006 LE. The nvidia driver along with beryl was working prior to the upgrade. I don't know what else to try aside from reinstalling (my important stuff is on separate partitions - so it's not that big of a deal. Just annoying. I used the help at the beginning of this thread to specify the kernel using -k$(uname -r)...thanks for that!!
So here I sit. Using software rendering...on my knees waiting for someone to help me.
