Default HP nx9500 / GeForce FX Go5700 - hang/freeze/lockup

I am trying to load RedHat Enterprise 3 on an HPA NX9500.
This comes loaded with an NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5700 card.
I can start the X server and login. Every time I try to logout using the GUI the machines hangs totally. It requires a reboot to free it.
It also hangs every time I attempt to use the browser to access the internet.

I have tried attaching this to an externel monitor that is working fine on a Linux desktop without any luck.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
