Unhappy Problem with a RealTek/WinFast GeForce FX 5200

I'm having problems with my GeForce FX 5200 graphics card. I'm using the newest Gentoo Linux release, and I've installed the nvidia-kernel package. However, when I try to load the module, I get an error message:

# modprobe nvidia
FATAL: Error inserting nvidia (/lib/modules/2.6.14-gentoo-r5/video/nvidia.ko): No such device

I've checked the BIOS settings and have made sure that "Assign IRQ for VGA" is enabled.

The nvidia framebuffer driver, however, seems to work just fine.

Here's the lspci output:

# lspci -v
