Unhappy I type startx, my screen flickers blue and turns black

I'm running Slackware 8.1 and i'm using XFree 4.2.0. I installed the drivers and it doesn't give me any errors. The logs look fine, no (EE) or (WW). I tried turning off GLX but it doesn't work. I tried both AGPgart and NVidia's AGP and it doesnt work.

Here's most of the hardware that is relevant:
MoBo: i440BX, which is supported by NVidia's AGP. It has a max of 2x AGP(or at least the bios has this, maybe i should update) and I configured this in /etc/modules.conf
Grafix Card: XFXGraphics GeForce 2 MX 400 SDR 4X AGP
Proc: P2 350(i'm upgrading soon, maybe a new proc or a whole new MoBo, my MoBo supports P3's now so I guess I should give it a shot)

I compiled the driver and kernel without any errors(that shouldn't be there, only some stuff about tainting the kernel)

Could anyone help me? Give me some suggestions?

If you have a question just wait for me to reply i'll be avaliable for the next 14 hours or so.
