Default Red Hat 8 and nvidia drivers problem

Hello, I've managed to compile the drivers using both src.rpm and tar.gz and both compile just fine, they seem to install just fine.

When I make the changes to XFREE86.conf and restart X, nothing happends, the screen turns black, and then blinks now and them, like its supposed to, but the splashscreen never comes on, and it just stops responding, I have to reboot the system to get back into Linux.

I did compile it the right way, I made the correct changes to XFREE86.conf.
I added this line to modules.conf:
alias char-major-195 nvidia
But the module doesnt load automatically, I have to load it manually, but that doesnt help any.
After loading the module, I check my agp status, and it says disabled.

My specs: xp2000 cpu, Geforce3 ti500. Via kt333 chipset, Red hat 8 Kernel 2.4.18-19.8.0.

Any ideas?
