Default Help

Ok, I've been using Mandrake 10 for about 2 days now. And I can not get the Nvidia drivers to work right wint my Geforce 4 440. I can get them to install and everything seems fine. Until I run glxgears. I get this error

Error: couldn't get an RGB, Double-buffered visual

I've change my XF86Config like I was suppose to. I've installed the drivers twice now with the same results.
Of course I can't run games either. Here is my log from trying to run Enemy Territory

Check if you can set 800x600 and 640x480 modes on the desktop, then post your X config here.
