Default 1.0-6633 ? & Problem Quadro FX 540 PCIe / x86_64


Firstly I was wondering what the 6633 version of the nvidia driver improved ?
Indeed the new HP Workstation are delivered with a 1.0-6633 (???) version.
here comes the documentation :

Is it a developer driver ? An hp patched version ? I didn't do any diff yet.
The driver is available with the resource cd of this hp workstation, I don't have the exact link here.

I'm interested in this driver because it seems to explicitly support Quadro FX 540 PCIe (PNY in my case).

Anyway, My problem is the following when I load the driver :
[root@pc1 nv]# insmod nvidia.o
Warning: loading nvidia.o will taint the kernel: non-GPL license - NVIDIA
See for information about tainted modules
PCI: Setting latency timer of device 03:00.0 to 64
NVRM: The IO regions for your NVIDIA card are invalid.
NVRM: Your system BIOS may have misconfigured your graphics card.
NVRM: bar1 (framebuffer) appears to be wrong: 0x0 0x1
NVRM: the NVIDIA probe routine was not called for 1 device(s)!!
NVRM: no devices probed, aborting!
NVRM: this often occurs when rivafb is loaded and claims the device's resources.NVRM: try removing the rivafb module (or reconfiguring your kernel to remove
NVRM: rivafb support) and then try loading the NVIDIA kernel module again.
nvidia.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg

[root@pc1 nv]# lspci -v

It seems that the resource is not initiliased correctly.

Memory at d8000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64M]
Memory at <ignored> (64-bit, prefetchable)
Memory at de000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16M]

the bar1 seems to be wrong.

My questions :
Does anyone had a successful installation with this card on any x86_64 architecture ?
Is these errors known ? any workaround ?

My hardware :
My motherboard is an Intel SE7535GP2 (PCIe x16) with 2 Nocona processor and 4GB of memory.
I'm running Entreprise Server 3 x86_64 Update 4 (kernel 2.4.21-27).
