Apologies, but I need *urgent* help with NVidia Geforce4 Go.

OK, I have downloaded latest AMD64 driver from NVIDIA, built from source,
and got errors about /usr/X11R6/lib64/modules/extensions/libglx.a (no such
file or directory).
Can I just ignore these errors?
It also complains that rivafb (compiled as kernel module) causes conflicts
with the NVIDIA driver. Should I also ignore thost?
