Unhappy GeForce2 GTS and Slackware 9.1

Okay, I have slackware 9.1 and am trying to get the nvidia driver going. The weirdest thing of it all is that it locks up when I change to the nvidia drivers in XF86Config file. When I reboot, the log file shows only from the last startx.

I have done the modprobe nvidia first, as this is an obvious problem I came up with so far.

I cant do the dmesg because it locks my my machine up and I have to completely reboot.

So you can imagine, its very difficult to troubleshoot what is going on

Once I reboot, also the XF86Config file goes back to what it was before I modified it (unless I do a reboot in between) - Must be because of not being able to unmount the filesystem first....

I have looked into my OS for different options for Plug and Play, and set it to Manual, this didn't help. I dont have a spot to set an IRQ for Video persay, but there is a spot I can assign the Video slot with a IRQ, and I have tried that to no avail.

Anyhow, I am attaching my XF86Config file I am trying to use.. Any ideas or help is really needed!!!
