This is what I had to do to fix this problem. Evidently Mandrake (MDK) installed the 3123 Drivers via rpm. The new install sytem by Nvidia is not rpm based. I had to run MDK control center and remove the 3123 rpm (via the commandline would not work), then delete anything that had a NVIDIA* file name. Then, I ran nvidia-installer --uninstall (the prior version I tried to install), and lastly, sh NVIDIA*4496.pkg2.run.
This worked. I read the docs for Nvidias new install sytem. If this works, it should make things alot less troublesome to upgrade to the next version.
