Unhappy FX 5200, Debian : can't get 3D acceleration

Hi everyone!
My X server works perfectly when using driver nv. But now, i'd like to enable 3D acceleration. I installed nvidia driver 1.0-6111 exactly as described in the readme (recompiled, nv->nvidia + modules), but it won't work ! When running startx, my pc just hangs with a black screen.

At bootup, nvidia kernel module is loaded without any error. I tried the following options in X server config file :
Option "NvAGP" "1"
Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "DFP, TV"

I also disabled Local APIC in my kernel, Fast Writes and got AGP to 4X in the BIOS.

The log file indicates the NVIDIA X driver and the GLX module are loaded. There isn't any error message in the log file.

If someone could help me... I attached the config file and the log. (with log-verbose 5)

Here is my config:
GeForce FX 5200 (64 Mo) bios :
SONY SDM HS-53 (flat screen)
driver version x86-1.0-6111
Debian Sid 2.4.27
Athlon XP 2800+
