Hello,
first of all I have to say GREAT WORK. I searched days and nights to find an actual driver working for me. I have an Dell Inspiron 8200 with an NVIDIA Geforce4 Go 440 64M.
I know that this is maybe not the right place for this question but I don't know where to post it: After getting the driver working for me I'm searching a solution for the same problem with newer nvidia driver for LINUX (Fedora Core 5). Maybe anybdy had the same problem an could solve it.

Thanks
Ronny

Well for starters for Fedora Core 5 installing 'third-party' drivers is ill-advised. Fedora devels have thought of this. You need kmod. I won't go into more details but to say that you should un-install any drivers you have manually installed and take a peek at this link here and goodluck :)
