That's because X dosen't support 2.6.3 kernel...
Or then it is other wise 2.6.3 kernel dosen't support X

all I know that if you install 2.6.3 kernel in to pc were is just X installed and 2.6.2 kernel it won't work even with basic drivers.

You are wrong, I 've just installed Mandrake 10.0 community edition with the 2.6.3 kernel and the X server works perfectly with the "nv" dirver, or the standard driver "vesa".
But it doesn't start with the "nvidia" driver, whiwh I just compiled for my kernel without any errors.
I use XFree86 Version 4.3.0.1
Here is the detail in the /var/log/XFree86.0.log file when I try to start X:
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA graphics device!
(EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Abording ***
(II) UnloadModule "nvidia"

That's odd, because I changed my driver to nv and X didn't start.
I use fedora core 1, but I have modified it so much that I guess it isn't fedora anymore...

My Xfree86 is in version 4.4.0

May be different for Red Hat, but with Mandrake 9.2, and now with Mandrake 10 the following works for me... (using 2.6.3 kernel and NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run )

1. make sure you are in text mode (of course) by using "init 3"

2. sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run

3. after install, edit the XF86Config-4 file and change Driver "nv" to Driver "nvidia" and save

4. run "ldconfig"

5. re-start the X Server (startx)

Hope this works as well for you as it did for me.

Just thought that I would post and let everyone know that it worked for me too under Mandrake 10.0 community.

Try this:
1/ Install the driver as described
2/ modify the /etc/X11/XFree86Config or /etc/X11/XFree86Config-4 if you are using version 4 or X server. (see the line (==) using config file : "????" in the file /var/log/XFree86.0.log to see which version you are using)
3/ modify the line Driver "nv" (or Drvier "vesa") with Driver "nvidia"
4/ right after that line, add the line
Option "NvAGP" "1"
5/ modify the file /etc/modules.devfs at the end:
modify
alias /dev/nvidia* NVdriver
with
alias /dev/nvidia* nvidia
6/ at the end of the file /etc/modules.conf add the following line:
alias /dev/nvidia* nvidia
7/ modify the file /etc/lilo.conf
in the section image=/boot/vmlinuz
label="linux"
add the line
append= noacpi
8/ in the BIOS of your computer, make sure the option Plug-N-Play if OFF or turn off the option PNP OS : OFF.
also in the BIOS, turn ON the Assign IRQ to VGA or turn it to AUTO

that should work
