Question newbie!! please help, wierd characters on screen after installing drivers

hi,

iam completely new to linux, will be very gratelful for anyone who can give me ideas fro solvin the problem:
installed RedHat Linux 9.0 on my comp.
Configuration: AMD Anthlon XP 2200+ / graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce2 MX/MX400 ,

downloaded and installed the latest drivers for the card from NVIDIA site.
after successfully installing the drivers and editing the XFConfig86 file, i restarted X only to get a black screen filled with wierd characters and then nothing happens,

had to change the drivers as "nv" again to make the os functional....

there is this error in the log file:
(EE) [GLX]: Failed to add GLX extension (NVIDIA XFree86 driver not found)

and also the following crap:
