Default Problems with NVIDIA driver 1.0-4363 on Mandrake Linux 9.1

Hi, I just installed Mandrake Linux 9.1 but can't get the Nvidia driver to work. The .run files exits successfully, and I have edited my XF86Config-4 file as the readme tells me to. But when i try to start X i get this error:

(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module!
(EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Aborting ***

XFree86.0.log is attached, and my XF86Config-4 is posted below.

The machines hardware specs:
  • Kudoz 7x motherboard with VIA Apollo KT400 Chipset
  • Asus 8200 Geforce 3 graphics card
  • Athlon XP 1800+ CPU

I really hope someone is able to help, thanks in advance.

XF86Config-4:
Code:
Section "Files"
    # Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
    # By default, Mandrake 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
    # the X server to render fonts.
    FontPath "unix/:-1"
EndSection

Section "ServerFlags"
    #DontZap # disable <Crtl><Alt><BS> (server abort)
    #DontZoom # disable <Crtl><Alt><KP_+>/<KP_-> (resolution switching)
    AllowMouseOpenFail # allows the server to start up even if the mouse doesn't work
