Unhappy mandrake linux 9.1 will not use nvidia drivers, PLEASE HELP!!

I have been trying to get 3d sopport on my system but i keep getting errors that i do not know how to fix.
I have done modprobe nvidia before use startx and here is the log.

it says
(II) Setting vga for screen 0.
(II) Loading sub module "vgahw"
(II) LoadModule: "vgahw"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libvgahw.a
(II) Module vgahw: vendor="The XFree86 Project"
compiled for 4.3.0, module version = 0.1.0

(==) NVIDIA(0): RGB weight 888

(II) UnloadModule: "vgahw"
(II) Unloading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libvgahw.a

then it crash'es. I need help, I have tried installing the drivers on mandrake linux 9.0, 9.1, 9.2rc2 and on red hat linux 9 and can't get them to work.

I have a PCchips motherboard for amd model 817 (i think this has a Via interface)
512 ddr ram
Amd atholon 2100+
Nvidia Geforce 2 MX/MX 400

I will post my xf86config-4 file next
