Default Ubuntu 10.04 freeze on X start

I am trying to install a geforce fx 5500 AGP card on a biostar k8m800 Micro AM2 motherboard
With a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04 AMD64 desktop with current updates everything works fine until I enable the nvidia driver (173.14.22) after that, boot appears to proceed normally until X starts at which point the computer hangs and only a power reset will restart it. If I boot in recovery mode and delete xorg.conf, the x starts fine (without the nvidia drivers). I tried manually installing 173.14.27 with the same results.

This card worked on this machine with Ubuntu 8.04 AMD64 and the nvidia driver (not sure which version it was).

I've attached bug-report and installer log.

Any help would be appreciated. My apologies in advance if I'm just being dumb.
