Default 0: NVRM: rm_init_adapter failed

I was previously using a successful Xinerama setup with two PCI TNT cards, with a Pentium III and i810 chipset, and the "nv" driver. This is on RH 8.0 with the updated kernel. So I install the Nvidia kernel module using srpm and the i386 GLX driver. It compiles and installs just fine, and the kernel module loads just fine. When I start X, one screen comes up fine, however the second screen fails with this in the XF86 error log

(**) NVIDIA(1): Depth 24, (--) framebuffer bpp 32
(==) NVIDIA(1): RGB weight 888
(==) NVIDIA(1): Default visual is TrueColor
(==) NVIDIA(1): Using gamma correction (1.0, 1.0, 1.0)
(--) NVIDIA(1): Linear framebuffer at 0xF9000000
(--) NVIDIA(1): MMIO registers at 0xFD000000
(EE) NVIDIA(1): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module!
(EE) NVIDIA(1): *** Aborting ***

This also shows up in dmesg

0: NVRM: rm_init_adapter failed

If I switch the second card back to the "nv" driver it works. Ive attached my XFconfig and XF error log. BTW, in the XFconfig file, Card2 is the disabled onboard i810.
