See interrupts quickly:
# cat /proc/interrupts
0: 42568985 XT-PIC timer
1: 225415 XT-PIC keyboard
2: 0 XT-PIC cascade
4: 1581644 XT-PIC usb-uhci, usb-uhci
8: 1 XT-PIC rtc
10: 9045138 XT-PIC cmpci
11: 36467541 XT-PIC nvidia
12: 462082 XT-PIC eth0
14: 209595 XT-PIC ide0
15: 7 XT-PIC ide1
Before I disabled USB2.0 jumpers, I would see 'ehci' as sharing irq11 with nvidia. Sharing the interrupt between the nvidia card and something else supposedly is one thing that can cause crashes, but when using the Ti-4200 GF4 card I have what seems to be an identical crash problem, whether the irq is shared or not.
one other thing about my setup: I have tried turning the apic interrupt controller off in my bios, but it doesn't seem to affect the crashing. gf4 crashes, gf2 does not. My present kernel is built to support local apics, I don't know whether RH packaged kernels do, but either way I can't tell if it makes a difference. What Bios settings variations have you tried?
I would really appreciate some input from Nvidia, since they have my money, several times now.
PS: did i read you correctly as saying that you initially installed rh8.0 with the ti-4200 in place and opengl worked with the nvidia 1.0-4xxx driver?
