Question nVidia and FreeBSD, X breaks completely

I've been using freebsd as a second os for a while, but I just recently decided to go all the way, and leave the dreary world of windows.

The problem is that my graphics adapter doesn't agree with me.

My system specs are:
MB: asus a7m266 with a tbird 1.4GHz and 512DDR.
The graphics adapter is a geforce2mx.

What happens is, I load the nvidia driver, version 4365. I set up my XF86Config, and I start X. My box freezes totally without as much as a flicker of the screen, and then reboots after about 15 seconds.

I've tried every possible combination of freeBSD-agp vs. nVidia-agp, and even no agp(!), and nothing works.

The log says no problem, and I'm kinda stuck. I really don't want to wait for the next release, because I'm a very impatient kind of guy.

Is there anyone out there who've been through this, or have any suggestions of _any_ kind, I would very much appreciate some feedback.

Thanks from the icy north, Norway.

It's worth point out that if you're using FreeBSD 5, that might be your problem.

Well, I'm running FreeBSD5.1-current.

Is there something I should know about that?
