Default Re: NVIDIA drivers cause black screen on startx

i'm having the same problem

I'm using FC2 with a recompiled 2.6.6 kernel. I followed this guide:

the kernel works very well, also the standard NV driver identifies my Geforce 2 MX 400 well, but somehow, just a blank screen when starting X

here's my cpuinfo (in case it might be needed)
[johndoe@localhost johndoe]$ cat /proc/cpuinfo
processor : 0
vendor_id : AuthenticAMD
cpu family : 6
model : 8
model name : AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2600+
stepping : 1
cpu MHz : 2088.477
cache size : 256 KB
fdiv_bug : no
hlt_bug : no
f00f_bug : no
coma_bug : no
fpu : yes
fpu_exception : yes
cpuid level : 1
wp : yes
flags : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 mmx fxsr sse syscall mmxext 3dnowext 3dnow
bogomips : 4136.96

anymore info needed? according to the guide that was supposed to be 'the solution', i did nothing wrong...or did i?
