I've installed the 169.04 beta drivers and can,t start X. Maybe a pci id problem? In vesa mode everything works! but when I switch to "nvidia" then xorg returns failedd to load nvidia kernel module
Have you checked that the nvidia module is loaded with "lsmod" (that's a lower case L)? If not try "modprobe nvidia" as root. If it is loaded, you might want to check dmesg and see if there are any relevant messages in there (such as a version mismatch).
