Default kernel 2.6.8 and black screen with last driver


I have uninstalled the driver previously installed.
And installed the last driver 6111. But startsx leads to a black
I have a warning during installation concerning the eventual conflicts with rivafb driver compiled as a module

I installed the new driver, running the kernel 2.6.8-2004-09-17

sh --kernel-name=2.6.8-2004-09-17

The nvidia-installer.log is :
option status:

-> Not probing for precompiled kernel interfaces.
-> Kernel source path: '/lib/modules/2.6.8-2004-09-17/build'
-> Performing rivafb check.
-> Performing rivafb module check.

I have also some warnings in dmesg :
atkbd.c: Spurious ACK on isa0060/serio0. Some program, like XFree86, might be trying access hardware directly.

Don't know if it means something.
What can I do ?

Thank you, xavier.
