Default Module doesn't load in kernel 2.4.18

I upgrade to de nvidia driver 4191. I have a debian woody with a kernel 2.4.18. I get the NVidia_kernel sources and I do "make" to install it. I received a warning "loading nvidia.o will taint the kernel: non-GPL license - NVIDIA" but all works well. However when I reboot the system I get this XFree Error "Failed to iniciaize Nvidia kernel module", and X doesn't start. Then I reinstall with make the kernel module and all works again, but is very annoying have to reinstall de kernel module each time I reboot the system. żAnybody knows something to solve this? Thx.

Add "nvidia" to /etc/rc.modules (or some similarly-named file under /etc somewhere).

Debian's boot scripts parse that file, and anything they find, they try to modprobe. This happens on every boot.
