Default No 1600x1200 with a Quadro2 and 1.0-4363 Drivers

On a SuSE 8.2 system, with the Quadro 2 MXR/EX video card, the default 'nv' driver allows 1600x1200 resolution with no problems. (No 3D, but it works.) Dual-booting to XP also allows that resolution. (By the way, the monitor is a Sony G520.)

After switching to the 'nvidia' driver, I cannot use anything higher than 1024x768. In that resolution, everything works great, but on a 21" screen, I need the resolution higher...

In the XFree86.0.log, it reports that 1600x1200 is not being used because the HSW and VSW are higher than allowed. In the readme for the new driver it does list off the limits on those values (256 and 16), but wouldn't the old driver be subject to the same constraints?

Anyway, I think I should be able to use this resolution, but I cannot track down any combination of modes that I can use to enable it. Any ideas on how I can get this to work?


BTW - Here's the two modelines I'm trying to get to work:

Modeline "1600x1200" 232.13 1600 1680 2032 2096 1200 1200 1218 1253
Modeline "1600x1200" 257.09 1600 1680 2032 2096 1200 1200 1218 1253
