Default GUI X will not start

I have a:
Nvidia TNT2
running on a 1GHz AMD Athlon processor

I am trying to install Red Hat Linux 9.0
what is happening is that X never loads. I get a message saying that my video card is not configured so it trys to configure it for me but then the screen flashes a couple of times and it keeps doing this over and over. So, I went to the NVIDIA web site and installed the drivers from the self installer. However, the problem is still happening. any suggestions? I've attached my log file.

here is what the first message box states:
"I cannot start the X server (graphical interface). It is likely that it is not set up correctly. would you like th view the X server output to diagnose the problem?"

this is what i found in the report as errors

- Failed to initialize the NVIDIA Kernel module
- Fatal server error : No screens found
