Transfer Case? Drive Shaft?

First thing...Thanks for all the information on this site it has help so much keeping my X5 on the rode.

I have a 01 x5 3.0. We replaced the driver side axle today. Took it for a test drive, stop at a light. When I started to take off I heard a very loud pop, and it wont move.

Engine runs great. When you put it in gear nothing....I looked under while it is in gear and the front drive shaft is spinning.

I have read up on all the problems with the transfer case and drive shaft.

I guess I am confused why the front drive shaft spins and not the rear, and why the front tires are not turning when the drive shaft is.

I hope someone can answer that for me....Thanks
