Default It's changed now

I reinstalled the old kernel source from the 8.2
CD and did
cd /usr/src/linux
make cloneconfig && make dep

Then
export IGNORE_CC_MISMATCH=YES
SH NVIDIA-Linux...etc

It did install the drivers this time.
Then I used SaX2 to enable 3d support but things still do not work right. When I bring up a
3D program such as Tux Racer it acts like it is doing it for a long time then stops without any error message. It just won't start the program.

In the earlier step after installed the old kernel source, when I went to YsST2 to update it as the instructions say to, it tried to install a new kernel which is what got me into this mess in the first place. I am at a point now where I am not crashing xterm every 5 minutes but things are still not right. Back to the drawing board. Suggestions are welcome.

The odd thing about YaST2 installing a new kernel is that a new kernel does not appear to be one of the choices. I don't get a chance to say NO.
