Default X crashes w/ 3123 drivers

NVIDIA RIVA TNT2. 32 MB.
Installed NVIDIA_kernel & _GLX 3123 from source. 2.4.17 kernel. Checked the FAQ, the PDF file w/ installation instructions, the list of installed components, etc. Ran nv_chooser before installing. Ran nv_check after. Everything checked out OK. However ---

Booting into runlevel 5, at the point that kdm starts, the screen just flashes on and off - i.e., the console screen, not the kdm. /var/log/messages has:

localhost kernel: nvidia: loading NVIDIA Linux x86 NVdriver Kernel Module 1.0-3123 Tue Aug 27 15:56:48 PDT 2002

and

localhost kdm[1809]: Server for display :0 terminated unexpectedly

kdm [] : Display :0 is being disabled (restoring too fast)

Any help appreciated. Thanks.
