Question Lock up w/ rh7.3, Riva TNT,& 3123 driver

I installed rh7.3, X worked w/out problems... on my Diamond Viper V550 (Riva TNT) 16SDRAM card. I upgraded the kernel to 2.4.18-10.

Then I try the NVIDIA binary rpms for the 2.4.18-10 kernel, because I could not find the kernel-headers more recent than glibc-kernheaders-2.4-7.16. I don't maybe that is all I would need.

Anyway I install the the NVIDIA rpms and fixed the XF86Config-4 file.
X crashs a few sec. after "startx". I see the screen flicker blue a few times then the white nvidia logo comes up. If I do not kill the X server w/ Ctrl+Alt+Backspace quickly I have to hit the HW Reset button.

The log file does not record the lock up error because I kill X there is one warning

I got the "nv" driver to work again but only if I comment out glx:
# load "glx"

Any ideas would be apreciated.
