Default Nvidia 4496 install problem with Mandrake

Mandrake 9.1
AMD 2500+
Plextor CDR
ASUS V7100PRO64Pure64MB Video
WD HD 80GB 7200RPM 8MB WD800JB

I have tried all of the suggestions I have run across but still wind up with a black screen after installing the 4496 drivers then rebooting. Any help is greatly appreciated. Here's what I've done:

Have loaded binutils

Checked the /etc/modules.conf file to make sure "alias /dev/nvidia* nvidia" was there
In the /etc/modules file "#NVidia" and added "nvidia"

Section "Module"
Load "dbe" # Double-Buffering Extension
Load "v4l" # Video for Linux
Load "extmod"
Load "type1"
Load "freetype"
Load "glx" # 3D layer

Section "Device"
Identifier "device1"
VendorName "nVidia Corporation"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce3 (generic)"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "DPMS"
