Question Problems with FX 5200 and twinview (tv-out) under Mandrake 9.2

I bought an ASUS V9520/TD card with a FX 5200 chip (lspcidrake tells me it's a 0x0322 => FX5200). I can't get it to work under Mandrake 9.2 (updated) with drivers ver5336 from mandrakeclub.com. I already tried with my old XF86Config-4 from a Geforce 4 MX440 as well as editing the twinview options myself.
The funny thing is I that I get perfect tv output from the very beginning until my login manager pops up (Mandrake uses Framebuffer during start-up), then the usual black screen...
Hardware? AthlonXP 2000, 512MB RAM, analogue 18'' flat screen.
Any help appreciated, thanks.
