Default Computer freezes AGAIN!

i am really getting tired of this crap for real.
Always with the new nvidia drivers my comp freezes on installing.

I have:
SuSE 9.1, Geforce FX 5600, AMD64 3200+
I have tried everything all the install methods.

SuSE 9.1 (32-bit) installed.
cause my DVD player has stopped reading dvd roms only normal CD roms...
So i cant install the SuSE 9.1 (64-bit) edition.

I have downloaded the 5336 nvidia drivers (32-bit), and installed it the way they tell me on the SuSE Readme. no luck. when i start X again with sax2 -m 0=nvidia it just gets me black screen. dead.. Hard reboot needed.

Ok booting again in init 3.
Installed the kernel sources, and have the kernel source updated.
Then did the rmmod nvidia, no nvidia found in /proc, i did the make cloneconfig gives me something i need to delete the old .config file. did that and did an make cloneconfig again. it worked.

Installed the 5336, and it just doesnt want to install.
Gives me an error about something it cant find the kernel sources or something.

Cant seem to work on anyway, the manual installing doesnt work either.
(--extraxt-only, make install)
