insmod alone works perfectly fine with Slackware.

Besides, newnux, did you launch the "make install" command just after you compiled the kernel module (in the NVIDIA_kernel directory) ? If you do it, what's the output of the command ? I'm mystified the module doesn't load at startup like it should do.

At least we know it does exist and that you can load it manually... There's hope left.

One question though, do you still get the "(EE) no drivers available" upon executing startx, or just "no screens found" ?

I'd suspect an XF86Config setup issue, even if I can't see the problem right now. I'll cross-check the one you posted above with mine at home.
