Default Quadro4 RH9 Xdisplay

I am new here so please bear with me...

Asus A7V333-X motherboard KT333 chipset
AMD Athlon XP 2700+ Processor
Quadro4 750 XGL 128MB
SyncMaster 172T flat panel
RedHat 9

I just bought that flat panel. Reading through your forum, I found out that the DVI port is not supported by driver nvidia 4363 or earlier version.
So I went for the analog port.
I installed the driver 4363 from nvidia website (installation went fine, see log) and tried to run X. It hangs.
CRT+ALT+BACKSPACE gives me the text mode back and it seems that initializing the GLX extension is the problem, since that is where it stops...
If I use the driver from RH9 (option "nv" for driver in XF86Config), the Xdisplay works fine but if I try the Nvidia driver (option "nvidia"), it fails...

Also, this monitor is supposed to have a resolution of 1280x1024 and it seems that I don't get that using the driver from RH9 because "hsync out of range"...

I am not really sure what kind of files I should provide you to help you figure it out...
I attached the nvidia-installer.log of the installation and my XF86Config... Let me know if you need anything else and I'll make sure to post it tomorrow.


PS: the funny thing is that my work computer has a flat panel T860 IBM using DVI port on a NetVista 8307-H6U IBM computer where we changed the video card to a Quadro4 750 XGL and running RH8 2.4.18-24.8.0 (using Nvidia driver 1.0-4191) AND IT WORKS FINE !!!!
