Default Nvidia splash screen comes up, but X won't start

I'm running RH 9 w/Xfree86 4.2.99.something and just installed nvidia driver 1.0-4363 and I made the proper changes to XF86Config. My problem is the X server shuts down after the Nvidia splash screen comes up.

I don't see any error messages. I'm on a Windblows machine right now, but will try to attach my log and config files if anyone needs them.

Thanks,

Tim

1) update to 1.0-4496.
2) try disabling AGP.
3) don't use a prerelease version of X.

This was a total fluke to figure out a fix to my problem, but I removed .xinitrc and .Xclients and X starts fine now. I'm running Gnome, so I don't need .xinitrc or .Xclients.
