Default Mandrake 9 and GeForce 4400

To be safe I changed the run level to 3, backed up the XF86Config-4 and changed the following

Section "Module"
# Load "dbe" # Double-Buffering Extension
# Load "v4l" # Video for Linux
# Load "extmod"
# Load "type1"
# Load "freetype"
#Load "glx" # 3D layer
EndSection

Then I started X -OK (to test before I installed the nvidia rpms)

Then I installed the compiled rpms with -ivh
and changed

Section "Module"
# Load "dbe" # Double-Buffering Extension
# Load "v4l" # Video for Linux
# Load "extmod"
# Load "type1"
# Load "freetype"
Load "glx" # 3D layer
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "device1"
VendorName "NVidia"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce (fbdev)"
Driver "nvidia"
# Option "DPMS"
EndSection

loged out restarted X and changed to 1024x768 24 bit colour (only had 16 bit before) and all -OK
