Default NVidia Display Drivers screw up KDE

Thanks to bigredlinux's suggestion, I decided to start a new thread concerning my problem.

The problem I'm having with the latest NVidia Display Drivers is that KDE will no longer work, nor will any of the KDE applications. Thus, I don't get the X server at startup, but I can still access the other GUI's without difficulty. When I type in "StartX", no matter if I'm logged on as root or as a user, it displays the following messages in the X server:

Couldn't load kdeinit: Please check your installation.
Couldn't load ksmserver: Please check your installation.

This is not exact, but close enough. I also got the following script in the terminal:

XFree86 Version 4.2.1 / X Window System
(protocol version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6600)
Release Date: 3 September 2002
(displays warnings about newer video cards)
Build OS: Linux 2.4.18-23mdkenterprise i686 [ELF]
Module Loader present
Markers: (--) probed, (**) from config file, (==) default set, (++) from command line, (!!) notice, (II) informational, (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
(==) Log File: "/var/log/XFree86.0.log", Time: Thu Oct 3 16:09:25 2002
(==) Using config file: "/etc/X11/XF86Config-4"
Using vt7
(II) [GLX]: Calling GlxExtensionInit

Waiting for X server to shut down.

With this, would you need the log file to see the actual cause of the problem? If so, let me know. I really need to get KDE up and running again. Thanks in advance.
