Default Mandrake 9.0&ti4200 driver problem

Hello everybody...
I had a problem with the latest nvidia drivers.

I have installed the lates nvidia drivers, but i am not able to switch to the nvidia driver trough teh mandrake control center, neither editing XF86Config-4 file as is said in the README file.

Everytime i change the config file to load nvidia driver, X don`t start. Examining Xfree log file, i get an error telling that nvidia driver (module) cannot be loaded. If i watch what modules are installed with lsmod, i see that nvidia is not loaded, so i load it using insmod without any problems except for it sais that the kernel gets tainted ("tainted kernel" message).
After loading the module, X starts normally. But after rebooting or switching to another user (after all, i am as root, and i like to use the desktop as a normal user), x doesn`t start, because nvidia module isn`t loaded.

How can i do in order to load nvidia module at boot?
Is "tainted kernel" the problem, so the module is not loaded at boot?

System configuration:
Athlon 1.4Ghz
DFI motherboard VIA KT266A with 256DDR266
Leadtek Winfast GeforceTi4200 64mb (A250td i think...)
Mandrake Linux 9.0
