Unhappy Booting into text mode after installing drivers

I think this may have been an error on my part, either way here I do. I'm using mandrake 9.1

I'm new to linux so I was installing my nvidia drivers for the first time. I rebooted into a texted only linux (because it said to exit X) and installed the drivers from there as root. The installation went fine, and I then edited my XFree86 file accordingly

Linux is starting into a text mode and asking me to log in. I can log in as either root or myself. When I restart I have the options of linux windows or failsafe, if I use failsafe i can use graphical interface and then it was startup fine, it's just a pain. When I get back up to my desktop I get the NVidia splash screen and the driver appears to be working fine. It's just a pain to tell it how to boot up every time.

I've read the FAQ's in the nvidia readme but i'm not getting an error in the XFree86 log file.
