Default Error on startx after updating drivers.

I just updatd to the newest linux drivers from the website, and am running RedHat 7.3 with the kernel update to .10

On X Start i get

(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6600)
Release Date: 23 January 2002
        If the server is older than 6-12 months, or if your card is
        newer than the above date, look for a newer version before
        reporting problems.  (See http://www.XFree86.Org/)

XIO:  fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0"
      after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
I am relativly inexperianced with *nix, but have enough familirity as a user to follow instructions and innovate etc (ie i unerstand output redirection, just howusefull grep is and wonder why everything takes so much longer on my windows machines, etc.)

Did you edit /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 like the README says to? You have to comment the Load "GLcore" and Load "dri" lines...

You will also have to change Driver "nv" to Driver "nvidia", but that's farther down in the config file. I see from your log that it's still trying to load the "nv" driver.
