Default Overscan fixed in 4363 driver

The "TVOverscan" now works on my card with the new (4363) driver. See the "Overscan" thread for more details.
Thanks Andy/NVIDIA!

Unfortunately, I am also seeing lockups with my smp/nvidia system. Here are the specs:

Dell Precision Workstation 450
2 x 2.8 GHz Xeon
Intel 7505 chipset
Nvidia 900 XGL Quadro 4 graphics
Redhat 8.0 - 2.4.18-14smp
Dell 2000FP DVI

I'm using the latest 4363 version of the drivers.

Now, the 4191 drivers locked up the system right from the get go, while I don't get lockups until some number of days with the current 4363 drivers.

For me, a lockup means:

- keyboard unresponsive
- telnet, ftp, rlogin, unresponsive
- ping is responsive
- screen just locks, but isn't garbled in any way

I've disabled AGP but the problem persists.

Some have suggested that I disable DMA on the IDE bus.

Some have suggested that I upgrade to the latest RH8.0 kernel or that I upgrade to RH9.0.

Andy - any idea on what is going on?

Here is the only fix for this problem I have found:

Downgrade to 3123 drivers.

That simple, I've had 3123 up for over a month with no lockups or crashes of any type. I don't know what changed in 4XXX, but SMP compatibility was broken.
