Default Cannot access 8-sample FSAA mode in GF8800

I have a GeForce 8800 running with the new 9746 driver.
I am trying to access the new FSAA modes, specificaly the 8 multisample mode.

The README section about the __GL_FSAA_MODE environment variable
only refers to boards up to the 7xxx series (hence no true 8-sample modes).

nvidia-settings --glxinfo, glxinfo (my build, fixing a multisample reporting bug), and a specially constructed glxinfo-like program that uses the GLX_SGIX_fbconfig API instead, all of these don not show any visual/fbconfig that has 8 samples.
Just the usual 4-sample visuals/fbconfigs.

Here is some output from nvidia-settings --glxinfo,
it shows only 2- and 4-sample visuals.
Code:
-fc- -vi- buf lv rgb d s colorbuffer ax dp st accumbuffer -ms- cav -----pbuffer----- ---transparent----
