Default nVidia 1.0-8762 driver for Quadro FX 1100: not attaching to the kernel?

Hi! I have recently adopted a Red Hat Enterprise 3.0 WS system with a nVidia Quadro FX 1100 card installed. Originally the OpenGL components were not working correctly, so I updated the the nVidia drivers (running the install program from the init 3 text based screen).

This worked very well, and OpenGL then worked fine. However, whenever I reboot, the driver setting returns to the generic vesa setting after generating the following errors in /var/log/XFree86.0.log:

NVIDIA(0): failed to load NVIDIA kernel module
screens found, but non have a usable config
Fata Server error:
no screens found

I've looked through various forums, and it seems that the nVidia driver is not attaching to the kernel during bootup. The problem is that I don't know how to make it attach during bootup, or where this would be done. Much of this is a crash course in linux operation for me.

As it stands, if I need to reboot for some reason, I have to reinstall the driver to get my OpenGL back. Obviously this isn't a feasible solution. I could upload my /etc/X11/XConfig, but currently it's in the working state.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
