Default NVIDIA with woody 2.4.20 doesn't work correctly

Hello Sirs,

when my X-Server starts i just see lots of charakters like

"####%$ #?!A###aaa # # $ ###" (not exactly but just to explain that there are lots of charakters without any meanings..) on the whole screen and the computer crashes.

However, the installation of the NVIDIA-Driver worked well and I didn't find any ERROR-Messages during the installation.

Maybe anyone has the same experiences and can help me whats wrong ....

here is my environment:

OS: Debian 3.0
Kernel: 2.4.20
grafic card: GeForce4 - 8x Ti4200
Driver used: the sources from NVIDIA

I installed exactly how it is described in the readme:

$ tar xvzf NVIDIA_kernel.tar.gz
$ tar xvzf NVIDIA_GLX.tar.gz
$ cd NVIDIA_kernel
$ make install
$ cd ../NVIDIA_GLX
$ make install

..... in the attachment

XF86Config-4 .... the Configuration-File for the X-Server
XFree86.0.log.20030203 ..... the log File created when i executed the x-Server with the command:

$ startx -- -verbose 5 -logverbose 5

i hope someone could help me!!

thanx in advance,
with kind regards,
