Default 1.0-4499 / K8T800 / SuSE 9.0 AMD64 / Quadro4 980 XGL

I've followed the installation instructions to the letter for nVidia's drivers and the SuSE patch, then repeated them to make sure. But every time I specify the nVidia driver for XF86 I get a screen full of garbage in lieu of the normal X startup screen. Everything's fine with the generic "nv" driver, but it lacks OpenGL and 3D stereo support -- which I need for molecular modeling.

My config file and verbose error log are linked. Hardware/software is as follows:

MSI K8T Master2-FAR motherboard (VIA K8T800)
SuSE Linux 64-bit Pro
PNY nVidia Quadro4 980 XGL
