Default problem with nVidia driver on Mandrake 9.2

I have a fresh install of Mandrake 9.2 PowerPack
Kernel is 2.4.22-10mdk
Video Card is PNY Geforce3 TI 200
Processor is AMD Athlon XP 1700+
Motherboard is Giga-byte GA-7vRX
Mandrake's nVidia driver did not seem to work, so I installed the new
nVidia driver from nVidia (1.0-5336-pkg1), made the changes to the
XF86Config-4 file as the documentation told me to, rebooted and the
screen flashed a few times and dumped me to command-line. The video bios is not being detected or something according to the /proc/driver/nvidia/cards/0 file.
Model: GeForce3 Ti 200
IRQ: 16
Video BIOS: ??.??.??.??.??
Card Type: AGP
The XF86Config-4 file is as follows:

Your nvidia kernel module and nvidia XFree module versions must match. Run the installer again, making sure it completes successfully.

It completed successfully last time. However, after getting this error, I found on other forums that other people had the same problem and what I did was went in and found the RPM package that Mandrake had installed and it was 4496, and I uninstalled it. I then reinstalled the 5336 driver, but it still does not work. However, now when I run 'modprobe nviidia' I get a garbled console.
