Post Can't start X

I install the newest drivers OK, and I edit the XF86Config file, but when I start X I get a message saying that "nvidia" is not a recognised driver.

I'm using Red Hat 7.0, and I'm using a GeForce 440.

I'm new to Linux, so I'm probably doing something really stupid. Any help would be appreciated.

Probably the nvidia-module are'nt loaded. Try as root:

lsmod | grep nvidia

This returns the nvidia-module name if it's loaded. If not try as root:

insmod nvidia

Then start x-windows.
