I just got it to work. Thxs for tor help

I did it a bit different:

1) Load suse Linux 8.1 in failsafe mode
2) Log in as "root"
3) Type in:
"rpm -e NVIDIA_GLX"
"rpm -e NVIDIA_kernel"
(This should deinstall old linux drivers)
4) Then install your new drivers:
"rpm -ivh NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123.suse81.i586.rpm"
"rpm -ivh NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-3123.suse81.i586.rpm"
5) Restart
6) Start Linux again in failsafe mode
7) Log in as "root"
8) Type in "startx"
9) Go into Yast2, configure a little bit around with your display settings
10) reboot, start normal

Please add this on the top of this forum mods, because I think there are a lot of people with a geforce2MX .

Cool Thank You

When modifying video/monitor, choose "Properties" for video card (I think it is the "advanced" button), and choose "NoRenderAccel" (2D rendering functions - does not affect 3D).
Thanks a lot, this fixed it perfectly. I am going to be reinstalling linux soon, so I will be able to verify that this is what fixed the problem. When I do I will post that here!
The link is overly confusing though, just do the "NoRenderAccel" which is under the "Expert" Options. The XF86Config fix also worked.
