Question Nvidia+Redhat 8.0 + Pci Card

Hi Folks
I have Experienced som problems during the install of The Drivers

i am running Redhat 8.0

I have Tried Both the 3.. driver and the New 4.. drivers but the problem seems to be the same

When i try to start X, my screen gets Covered with alot of Typing, and i cant interact with my system any longer..
only reboot the system by pressing ctrl+alt+delete

I details this i what i did:

Downloaded the 2 drivers GLX & Kernel
in the src.rpm format

rebuileded them with no errors
only the only the one which says that some gl files have been backed up...

afther that i installed them rpm -ivh Nvidia*

and edited my Config and changed what should be changed ..

but it just wont work

i tried looking in the log file for XF.... but there where no Warnings or errors,,, eveything works fine....

# The location of the RGB database. Note, this is the name of the
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db"). There is normally
# no need to change the default.
# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.
