Unhappy

I have the same problem. I have tried RedHat 9 and the drivers work fine. In Mandrake 9.2 I startx and get a black screen and I have to hard reset. I have tried all the fixes found so far. This is a stock install, nothing changed, by the way. I have a Geforce4 Ti4600

Once I have installed the drivers, I go back to runlevel 5 (INIT 5) and I can see the logo of nVidia. Then, I can see the KDM that asks me my username and password. Once I login under KDE / GNOME / WindowMaker (or whatever envirnoment) I have only a few seconds of glory after the screen freezes (sometimes the KDE session doesn't start because the screen freezes before and I only get the KDE splash screen paused, and the start session music sounds in a ringlet (one and once again until I make a hard reset). Sometimes I can move the mouse cursor and sometimes I can't... but always the keyboard doesn't respond once this happens).
==================================================
I tried MDK 9.2b2 and I get the same problem. Now I have just reinstalled MDK 9.1 for third time since this weekend and I'm running now with the generic "nv" driver that comes with XFree 4.3.
==================================================
I'm a bit inexperienced with Linux, but I know that something is wrong winth MDK and my hardware configuration, because with MEPIS (Debian based distro) and Red Hat 9.0 the nVidia drivers works perfectly.
==================================================
Your problem was like mine? You solved it upgrading to MDK 9.2? Thanks
