Default Mandrake 9.2 and NVidia 1.0-5328

Ok, Im using Mandrake 9.2 with 2.4.22-10mdksmp, a Geforce4 MX 440 (64MB), ECS motherboard (L4VXA2) w/P4X400 North and VT8233A southbridge. 512 MB DDR. This is a clean install and works perfectly with the nv driver.

When I ran the Nvidia installer everything installed fine and the kernel moduals load fine. When I type startx the screen goes blank and seems to try to display the Nvidia splashscreen but stays black. There is a video signal being sent to the monitor because the power light stays green. ALT-Ctrl-Bcksp does not work. Neither does Alt-Ctrl-+/-. It seems from looking at the /var/log/XFree86 log that it might be something with the display but I'm not sure at this point. I am Attaching the log file, and my XF86 config file. Any help would be appreciated. Let me know if you need more info. I know the XFconfig file lists nv driver. That is so I could get here to post. I did change the nv to nvidia.
