Default NVidia Trouble

I'm terribly sorry if this has been covered elsewhere, but I couldn't find anything close with a search. I'm also sorry if my post seems to be so simple, but I have no where to turn to or learn these things. If you have any suggestions on reading, please let me know.

Onto my problem. I'm trying to install the NVIDIA drivers for Slackware 8.1. I did an 'XFree86 -version' which reports XFree86 version 4.2.0. I downloaded the src rpm's and followed this to install the drivers. Well, I never did see the 'driver "nv"', but saw a 'driver "vesa"' and changed that to "nvidia". Does this mean my NVidia Drivers aren't loading? ModProbe does not report 'NVdriver' being loaded. What have I done wrong? What commands do I need to install to get this working?

Again, I would like to apologize for my 'newbie' questions, but I have no where to turn. I will be so very greatful for any help you can provide. Please contact me on AIM, ixion001 if you would like.

Thank You!!
