Default nForce 420-D Chipset

Hi all,

I've installed:

but everytime I try to start X-Windows by running 'startx' all I get is a blank screen. I am able to restart by hitting ctrl+alt+delete, so it isn't totally frozen.

Motherboard = ASUS A7N266-E with NVidia nForce 420-D Chipset
Monitor = Samsung SyncMaster 955DF

I boot to runlevel 3 by default. I login as root. I then run 'lsmod NVdriver' to start it up and then I run 'startx'. I don't have any errors when booting. I've editted /etc/modules.conf. I ran Xconfigurator without testing (that would hang) and then editted /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 as described in one of the readme files.

I've attached the log file /var/log/XFree86.0.log. I'm not sure how to proceed. If there are any other files I can attach or paste, let me know. I would like to get Redhat Linux 7.3 up and running.
