Unhappy RedHat 9 + 1.0-4363 + GeForce 3 Ti 500 = black screen

Please note that I am attaching verbose output of XFree86 log.

Here's my system configuration:

- video card = PNY GeForce 3 Ti 500
- driver version = 1.0-4363
- distribution = RedHat 9
- video bios revision = 03.20.00.19.08
- processor = 2 GHz Intel Pentium 4
- motherboard model = Intel D850MV

The subject heading basically speaks for itself, although I would like to point out that if I wait about 4 minutes, the X session will finally start, although OpenGL applications still won't work

Here's the output when I try to start Quake3:

...loading libGL.so.1: Initializing OpenGL display
...setting mode 9: 1600 1200
Error couldn't open the X display
...WARNING: could not set the given mode (9)
Initializing OpenGL display
...setting mode 3: 640 480
Error couldn't open the X display
...WARNING: could not set the given mode (3)
Received signal 11, exiting...

Although glxgears seems to run fine:

[root@varestsward2 bin]# ./glxgears
18925 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3785.000 FPS
21697 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4339.400 FPS
22048 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4409.600 FPS
21189 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4237.800 FPS

Miscellaneous info:

- Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "CRT" makes things worse (X session never starts no matter how long you wait)
- Option "NoBandWidthTest" "1" doesn't have any effect
- rerunning "ldconfig" made no difference
- all necessary symlinks and libraries appear to be in place

I hope you can help me here... I wasted the better part of a weekend trying to get this stuff working. I can send other log files if you need them.
