Default crash

I installed my new card (a PowerColor Geforce 4 Mx440-8X) into Mandrake 9.1

The original XF86 config works, but GLX doesn't. Looking deeper I noticed that the device was named nv. After reading a bunch of stuff, it looked like it should have been nvidia. Now I get the nvidia screen up (it wasn't showing before) and after it starts to run X it crashes. The keyboard's locked (numlocks don't work, ctrl-alt-f1, ctrl-alt-backspace,ctrl-alt-del all fail) . The mouse still moves on the screen, but otherwise I've got a dead computer.

The computer is an amd, with on board video (does that matter? the nvidia seemed to override it).

Has anyone got any ideas to help?

Think I've fixed it. Disabling AGP makes it much more stable. (That is one LONG readme!)
