Default How do I...

I successfully compiled the kernel module for my nvidia, but cannot seem to successfully startx while using it. I tried the noapic solution but the computer still lock-up while loading XFree86. All I get is a black screen. But I think I know why: at boot time my kernel use and configure vesafb. And using to different driver for the same device should be avoided, right?

How do I tell the kernel to forget about vesafb (to not enable that frame buffer device) and load nvidia fb driver instead? I compiled my kernel (2.4.22) with vesafb not being a module...

I tried to gather some info from tldp but got no luck, yet...
