Default AMD64, Tyan K8W, Geforce 5700 = black screen

I want to post a followup to my original thread on the black screen of death issue I've been experiencing.

OS: Gentoo (lastest patches) 64 bit OS
MB: Tyan Thunder K8W S2885
VC: AOpen Nvidia Geforce FX 5700
Drivers: 6111, latest available.
AGP: kernel (or nvidia's native for that matter)

Issue: It does NOT WORK. Black screen of death. Substituting an Nvidia GeForce FX 5700 Ultra 3 into the SAME BOX, SAME EXACT CONFIG FILES, SAME EVERYTHING WORKS PERFECTLY. (And the 5700 Ultra works fine on another identicle box running Suse 9.1 in 32bit mode.)

So, can someone from Nvidia please tell me on top of the information I've already sent/posted what else that's needed in order to get a bug fix or narrow down the exact software component causing the issue? It's now approaching 2 months since my original email bug report and I still haven't heard anything. (And no, keeping the 5700 Ultra isn't an option, it's someone elses and the driver read-me explicitly states that the 5700 IS supported in 64bit mode.)

Thank you!
