Default fresh reinstall

I tried to re-install RH9 thinking that maybe it would be better...

I tried first with the DVI port and RH9 recognizes the monitor as a SyncMaster (which it is) but once it starts the display to configure, this is black, no image...

So I tried with the analog port and everything went smoothly (although it said "Unprobed Monitor")...
Then I tried to install nvidia driver 4363 but the loading of the GLX extension is the problem... I left it 15 minutes trying to load that stuff and gave up.
I went back to the "nv" driver and everything works fine although it is annoying to have a 3D video card and not being able to use it.

I did not try EDID and NvAGP options (I am a little scared about EDID since the manual says it could be harmful to the monitor!!)...

Is the SyncMaster 172T not compatible with RH9?? (although I don't see why it would not).

Next step is to try RH8 and we will see...
