Yesterday, i had the same problem, but with a GForce 2MX.

Now, i don't know why, it works. Here are the things i made (i made them 
for install a motorola winmodem, and now, works the modem and the grafic 

- I had gcc-3. As shown in LFS-CVS, installed gcc-2
- Recompiled the kernel using gcc-2
- Extract the files in nv*run.
- Go to the directories and find the directoy src
- then recompile the nvidia driver with gcc-2 (make CC=/opt...)
- make sure your new "nvidia.o with gcc-2" is placed in /lib/modules...
- Change the XF86Config-4

Note: you'll must recompile all the modules with gcc-2, as alsa (i think)

i hope it'll work for you. good luck!
