Default 5336 - module disappeared

today was my first day with linux (suse 9) and after some looking about, i wanted to install the latest driver for my geforce 2 ti.... although it was not easy for a beginner, i finally managed, but now the gui won't start again... i found out that xfree86 doesn't load... when i try to load it manually, it says that it failed to initialize nvidia kernel module... if i try to start that thing manually, the system can't find that module either (all the time, i'm on that blue screen with white font, i think it is called grub).
what's wrong? what do i have to do? if nothing else works, uninstalling the new driver and accepting that i have no 3d-functions would be ok....

Some of us need to modprobe nvidia before starting X, so try that. Also try the nv or vesa drivers because they are easier to get going than nVidia's - that would give you a starting point.

Try running 'find /lib/modules -name nvidia\*' (without quotes)
That should tell you if the module is located anywhere near the right place.
