Default Re: 1.0-7167 for Linux x86 released

Linux-GNU 2.6.10 on Intel P4 3.06GHz
TNT2 M64 32M, XFree86 4.4

7167 compiles without any problems BUT
when I try to bring up XFree86:

FATAL: Module nvidia already in kernel.
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to load the NVIDIA kernel module!
(EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Aborting ***

Note: I tried w/wo 'modprobe -q agpgart'
(AAMOF nvidia always needs agpgart up and running)

Please also note that 6629 does not work either but
6111 (with patches) works AOK.
(i.e. To get on line for this post I reinstalled 6111).

Please help. In the meantime,
is there a way I can use the XFree86 nvidia driver?
(/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/nv_drv.o)
If so, how can I get from the '*.o' to the '*.ko'
module needed by 2.6.x kernels?

Thanks
