Unhappy X won't start properly, RH7.3 and SiS 645 DX

I'm using GeForce 2 GTS card under RH Linux 7.3 kernel 2.4.18-3. My M/Board is Gigabyte GA-8STML using SiS 645 DX chipset. Under the default installed setting (ie. using the "nv" driver), X server and things works fine.

Then I installed these two rpm packages:

NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2960.rh73up.i686.rpm
NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-2960.i386.rpm

and edit the XF86Config-4 to load the nvidia driver. The X server seems to start but the screen remains blank (as oppose to crashing out).

Checking the XFree86.0.log file, the only suspicious message is a warning that the driver fails to verify AGP usage.

It also seems that the driver didn't recognise the SiS 645 DX chipset as cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/host_bridge shows that a SiS (Unknown) chipset is used.

I don't know what's wrong? Can somebody help please?
