Question Installing nvidia 1.0-4191 and upgraded kernel 2.4.21-pre3

I've a gforce2(go) in my laptop w/ linux rh 8.0.

I've recently made a kernel upgrade (2.4.21-pre3) and now I can't start X.
What i've done was:
1. upgraded kenel
2. install nvidia kernel and glx (1.0-4191) tar.gz (all went well)
3. tried to start X and the Xserver crashes.

my XF86Config is like this:
Section "Module"
Load "dbe"
Load "glx"
Load "extmod"
Load "type1"
Load "freetype"
Section "Device"
Identifier "NV AGP"
VendorName "nvidia"
Driver "nvidia"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"

Finally the error is: (nvidia part of XFree86.0.log)
(II) Setting vga for screen 0.
(II) Loading sub module "vgahw"
(II) LoadModule: "vgahw"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libvgahw.a

(II) UnloadModule: "vgahw"
(II) Unloading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libvgahw.a
