Default Problem with kernel rhp

Hi, I am a somewhat a novice so any help is appriciated. I upgreaded my kernel from 2.4.18-10 which was working with NVIDIA driver and I got startx to work after a few weeks. Now my kernel is 2.4.18-27.7.x because I used the update agent to install the RPM's

When I boot from my floppy 27.7.x the screen is blank and when I try to startx from a windows session it fails. Looking under the the boot libs I see the NVdriver

1959668 1172 -r--r--r-- 1 root root 1194920 Aug 27 2002 /lib/modules/2.4.18-10/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver

I do not want to compile my kernel (chicken). I tried to reinstall the NVIDIA rhp while running 27.7.x kernel and it failed. Any ideas how to install the driver in the new kernel?

I rebooted with 2.4.18-10 and everything seems to be okay. There were error messages on the new kernel. I am looking into those.

This is my first post on this site. thanks ahead of time for any help.
