Unhappy Mandrake & nVidia drivers (whatever version)

Hello there:
I have a serious problem with Mandrake 9.1 and nVidia Drivers. When I install them I get my Mandrake Box unusable because the X server freezes and nothing can be done to shut down correctly because mouse and keyboard doesn't work. It has been the same problem with every version of the drivers I have tried since July last year.

But, by other hand, I installed MEPIS linux (Debian Based) and the drivers worked fine, but... my SB Live! 5.1 doesn't work properly. Because that, I know I did the installation correctly: the problem isn't my video card, my mother board or the "XF86Config-4" file edition. Must be a problem with Mandrake distro.

Anyone knows what's the problem I'm talking about? This problem also happened to me with Mandrake 9.0. My nVidia card is a GeForce4 MX440. I would like to see my MDK box running fully functional.

Thanks for read this: I hope someone could help me to solve this.
