Default NVIDIA Aladdin TNT2 / FreeBSD 6.0

uhum I`m apologise if, i`m not posting in the right place, but i didn`t really know where shoud i put this one. I wish to install nvidia Video driver under my PC-BSD, or FreeBSD 6.0 but I wasn`t able to ( , so i`ll need a little help. The videocard is on board,
"Motherboard Name PCChips M754LMR (3 PCI, 2 DIMM, Audio, Video, LAN, Modem)
Motherboard Chipset ALi M1631 ALADDiN TNT2
System Memory 224 MB (SDRAM)
BIOS Type AMI (12/12/00)
Communication Port Communications Port (COM1)
Communication Port Printer Port (LPT1)

Video Adapter NVIDIA Aladdin TNT2 (24 MB)
3D Accelerator nVIDIA RIVA TNT2
Monitor EIZO FlexScan F77 (701926425111)

I`m a newbie/noob so if you know how to please, explain me how to install it or, maybe if you know a tutorial... What I did/tryed do and dosen`t work :

" #cd /usr/ports/nvidia-driver
I edited the /etc/X11 configuration file like:

"If you already have an X config file working with a different driver
(such as the 'nv' or 'vesa' driver), then all you need to do is find
the relevant Device section and replace the line:

Driver "nv"
(or Driver "vesa")


Driver "nvidia"

In the Module section, make sure you have:

Load "glx"

You should also remove the following lines:

Load "dri"
Load "GLcore" "
But the X dosen`t start, and give errors.
If I use "nv" driver my sistem FREEZE and die, keboard dosen`t respond on "ctrl+alt+shif/ctrl+alt+f1" etc. So i assume i need the nVidia videocard drive.

I didn`t find on a driver that will support AlladinTNT2 and freebsd 6.0

Some of X server configuration that i did tried/ operating sistems are here...

Any suggestions, Ideeas will be welcomed.
