Default GeForce FX5200

I've tried installing the nvidia drivers for my geforce fx 5200 on Fedora 3 but what first happened was it frozze at the kernel, so i did this
1) Interrupt Grub from booting, edit the bootparameters with "e"-key, and remove the "rhgb"-parameter from the boot parameters. The continue booting normally. (This will skip the graphical boot in Fedora.)

2) Fedora complains about not being able to start GDM, ignore it and cancel all questions to get to the login prompt.

3) Login as root, enter "init 3" to go to single-user mode. Enter "modprobe nvidia" to load the nvidia-module.

4) Finally, enter "cp -a /dev/nvidia* /etc/udev/devices/" to fix the boot problem.

5) Now just enter "init 5" and you're back in business.
and it started to work , it showed a splash saying nvidia before the login screen but when it came to the login screen it completely frozze ... any ideas?

What hardware are you using? Are you using XF86, or X.Org? More info might help. I presume you're using a 2.6.x kernel, since you seem to be using udev. Can you attach your .config to your next post?
