Default Screen tinted red?

I know you get a lot of these 1-post newbies here who never use their accounts except for starting a single thread, but I never found a similar problem anywhere else.

I am building a Linux From Scratch system, and was forced to use the 64-bit .run package for the 1GB BFG-Tech 9800 GT. I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this, as I just finished compiling X, which worked perfectly when I tested it, but here's there errors that I can recall with my driver:

I installed the driver, it compiled with a bunch of warnings about already-existing symlinks (I tried to install the driver without X a while back, which obviously didn't work), but installed successful. I run X, after running the NVIDIA X auto-config thing and rebooting, and recieve a bunch of messages about not being able to load the GLX module. I try to run Blender, which quits with some OpenGL error.

I then checked the installation, via the --sanity switch, and it failed for every single file (as many as I saw scroll down the screen). I then reinstalled the driver (ran the package with --uninstall and then reran it after rebooting). Same thing, same symlink warnings, same sanity check failures.

THEN, I completely uninstall it, reboot, and re-run Blender. It opens fine now, but whenever I rotate the default cube, it flashes red, green, and blue violently, and the X "desktop" is tinted bright red (Blender's colors and GUI is REALLY messed up; it is a mix of random colors with barely readable text).

Has anybody else had this problem? Here's my (current, non-NVIDIA) xorg.conf file if it helps:
