Default Driver Frustrations

Hi all.

I'm having a big problem with the linux drivers on this site. I've tried for serveral days to get them to work, without success. I can't seem to find answers anywhere either.

Here's what I have:

Slackware (2.4.20 kernel)
The Latest Nvidia Drivers
Nvidia GeForce2 MX-200

I did everything according to the docs (over and over again). But everytime I edit XF86Config to include "nvidia", I get the follwing when I try and startx:

Failed to Initialize NVIDIA module

*** ABORTING ***

Screens found but none with a useable configuration

Now, everything works fine with the old "nv" module. Well, except when GLX is enabled, because it will load with errors also:

Server caught signal 11

But when I even attept to load the nvidia module, which I compiled from the source tarball, I get the errors above and my computer freezes!

If anyone has any ideas on this, I'm all ears cause I've tried and read everything I could get my hands on.

Could it actually be that the NVIDIA drivers simply don't work? Probably not, but I'm starting to wonder . . .
