Default Graphic errors and no keyboard

Hello,
I recently purchased a new card, Winfast Geforce FX 5200.
The drivers successfully installed on my debian sid system running
kernel 2.6.0. When I startx,. xdm shows up in an odd way:
graphics are recognizable, but they contain several errors that differ
with each start of X. The mouse reacts normally, but keyboard input is not
possible anymore.

I use the actual x86 kernel, but tested 4620 as well.
My attached XFreeConfig is a modified SuSE one, that once worked with
my former card.

Note: My config says that I use the vesa driver: This is just because I had
to switch back to it to get a working X. Of course, the problems I described occur with the nvidia driver and not with vesa.

No, unfortunately, the nv driver does not support my Geforce FX 5200 chip.
I think this would not replace the 'real' nvidia driver anyway (?)
