Default X server won't start

I've installed the Nvidia drivers and they have compiled and installed with no problems. However, when I try to start the X server, it fails. Here is relevant info from Xorg.0.log:

(II) NVIDIA X Driver  1.0-8178  Wed Dec 14 16:25:22 PST 2005
(II) NVIDIA Unified Driver for all Supported NVIDIA GPUs
(II) Primary Device is: PCI 01:00:0
(WW) The NVIDIA GeForce2 Ultra GPU installed in this system is
(WW)      supported through the NVIDIA Legacy drivers. Please visit
(WW) for more
(WW)      information.  The 1.0-8178 NVIDIA driver will ignore this
(WW)      GPU.  Continuing probe...
(EE) No devices detected.

Fatal server error:
no screens found

Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support
         at http://wiki.X.Org
 for help.
Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional information.
This is a Fedora Core 4 machine. Is there a different driver I need to load? If so, which one? How far back should I go? Many thanks.
