Default RedHat 5.3 / DELL problems with nvidia 180.29

Hi,

DELL shipped Xeon (x86_64) box with RH 5.3. It came with 169.12 pre-installed drivers, but no 3D or openGL support.

I have downloaded new drivers (180.29) and installed. Installation compiled kernel module because no relevant kernel module was found in FTP site, and probably placed into some standard place. I have modified xorg.cong: changed "nv" --> "nvidia", and added Module section (it was missing). However, it seems that old RH kernel with 169.12 driver support is loading, although 180.29 drivers are found. X servers does not load.

How to load proper kernel ? Or it is something else ?
I dig as much as my Linux-related education is valid. However, here I already need some help...

With best
Arturas

I attach files (*.tar.gz): nvidia-bug-report.log, nvidia-installer.log, and Xorg.0.log.
Also, I forgot to mention that my system is SMP with Quadro FX 570.

1) Remove NVIDIA drivers; (./NVIDIA-xxx.pkg --uninstall)
2) Remove all NVIDIA related packages from your system; (rpm -qa | grep -i nvidia)
3) Reinstall xorg server and Mesa libraries; (xorg-x11-server-Xorg; mesa-libGL)
4) Install NVIDIA drives.
