Default How to start gnome after nv driver installation (RH 9)?

Hello.
I am using RH 9, and I've just installed the new nvidia drivers. The installation completed successfully. Sadly, however, the default session, gnome, has somehow been replaced with the TWM which I'm not fond of at all ... and I can't seem to get the gnome started. How can I get it started, and set it as a default? I tried startx gnome-session and stuff like that but no good.
Thank you.

Maybe its a problem with your ~/.xinitrc file.
To launch gnome directly (i.e with startx) you need the line
exec gnome-session

Remove any references to twm.

Not sure whether that is the same as running startx gnome-session, but i guess its worth a shot.
