    Ok. Something isn't happening. You said you recieved no errors at all when you ran the install script, but when you did a modprobe nvidia the module did not load. I'm at a loss. Is there a step here I'm not seeing? Are you rebooting between these installs?

    Did you make sure to init 3 before configuring the drivers??? I'm at a loss why the kernel module isn't popping in, maybe a re-install???

    Just a wild guess, but are you sure you downloaded the correct driver files for your card?

    Another wild guess, did you download the correct kernel sources. From memory Mandriva seems to have a variety of sources available from urpmi. Try using urpmq kernel-source and choose the one which exactly matches your kernel. You can find out which kernel you are using with uname -r
