Default My Struggle with the New Drivers

I have Mandrake 9.0. I ran NVChooser and downloaded the appropriate RPM's.

I did rpm -ivh kernel

and rpm -ivh glx

as it said, they appeared to install correctly.

I changed my XF86Config-4 file from "nv" to "nvidia"

However, if I try to start X, it fails with

"(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module!"

in the log file. I try running drakconf and get the same thing when I test
driver. I have tried everything and am at my wit's end.

please help!
thx
