Thanks again!
What I had to do to get that driver working was to do a modprobe nvidia, then startx. I then added the line modprobe nvidia to my /etc/rc.d/rc.local file right above the touch /var/~ line (last line in the file). Now the driver loads durring boot and all is well. Now if only UT2004 would load maps faster than the 5-7 min. that it is taking. If I remember correctly, nvidia had some trouble with UT once before. They were very quick to fix that one. I am wondering if there might be a problem with this one??

Code:
    if [ -f /etc/security/msec/issue.net.$SECURE_LEVEL ]; then
	cat /etc/security/msec/issue.net.$SECURE_LEVEL > /etc/issue.net
    elif [ -f /etc/security/msec/issue.net ]; then
	cat /etc/security/msec/issue.net > /etc/issue.net
    else
	rm -f /etc/issue.net
    fi
fi

modprob nvidia
touch /var/lock/subsys/local
