Default Geforce 6200, no success with nv or nvidia driver.

My trying to get my new 6200 card to work properly.
But it wont!
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GeForce 6200 (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA])
Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc.: Unknown device 81c7
Flags: bus master, 66MHz, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 177
Memory at 00000000fd000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16M]
Memory at 00000000c0000000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=256M]

It starts with the nv drivers in Xorg 6.8.2 (amd64) in a suse environment,
But it thinks it's 1280x1024 but its a samsung 204ts
bash# cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep Panel
(--) NV(0): Panel size is 1280 x 1024
(II) NV(0): Panel is TMDS

And it refuses to use 1600x1200:
(II) NV(0): Mode "1600x1200" is larger than BIOS programmed panel size of 1280 x 1024. Removing.
(II) NV(0): Not using mode "1600x1200" (unknown reason)

The old geforce3 did work until it died...

So, I whent in to the driver downloaded from nvidia.

But the scripts sucks bigtime. I wrap strange, it removes spaces and dont scroll
so there is no way to know what you are doing and reply correct to the questions.
But at least I got a proper kernel module. But when I try to us the new driver
the X-server starts to loop using 100 percent CPU and blinking.
With the NV driver I can at least use it. The card is working perfect in XP environment.

Any ideas what to do? In what terminal are the installation working? I have tryed it on linux console, xterm, gnome-term. Exactly the same problem with the user interface.
