Default Need help with the 4496 driver

Hi all, I am new to Linux, and hoping somebody might be able to help me out with this problem. I downloaded the 4496 drivers, shut down the X session, installed the driver as per instructions. I did not use any command line options. I edited the XF86Config file and replaced "nv" with "nvidia". Restarted X, saw the NVidia splash screen and when I was in the desktop ran Chromium to test the installation. Everything worked fine. After a reboot however, I ran Chromium again and it refused to start as did all the other GL games.

Could somebody tell me if there is some command I need to run so that the system will take advantage of the new drivers? Any help would be great.
