Default Help installing video drivers

I use slackware 9.1 with kernel 2.4.22
after I downloaded the latest driver for linux I ran it (it was a "shell script")
For some time it seemed like something was going on. Then KDE crashed and returned me to the console where ware some error messager. I ran the script again and again, and every time there was some activity, but it the preferences the VESA graphic adapter didn't change.

IS there anything else I need to do exept running the shell script.

My videocard is integrated GF4MX ot a nFORCE 2 Ultra 400 mobo (GA 7N400 V Pro)

Post your XF86config file, it may need to be edited. Have you read the readme on nvidia's site?

you have to run the installer script from the command line AFTER you have exited X

you can not run the installer from within X / KDE / GNOME etc
