Default GeForce FX/1680x1050 Problem

Several months ago I purchased a Samsung SyncMaster 106BW monitor/crt and the new Nvidia driver for Windows XP works just fine because the driver includes a 1680x1050 mode. However every attempt to try and upgrade my Linux machines (2) with a new Nvidia drive have failed.

Here is roughly the problem as recorded in /var/log/XFree86.setup.log:
XFree86 Version 4.3.0 (Red Hat Linux Release 4.3.0-2)
Release Date: 27 February 2003
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0, Release 6.6
Build Operating System: Linux 2.4.20-3bigmem i686 [ELF]
Build Date: 27 February 2003
Build Host: porky.devel.redhat.com
Module Loader present
OS Kernel: Linux version 2.4.20-8 (bhcompile@stripples.devel.redhat.com)
Markers: (--) probed, (**) from config file, (==) default setting,
(++) from command line, (!!) notice, (II) informational,
(WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
(==) Log file: "/var/log/XFree86.0.log", Time: Fri Nov 23 13:29:39 2007
(==) Using config file: "/etc/X11/XF86Config"
NVIDIA: could not open the device file /dev/nvidia0 (Input/output/error)
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA graphics device PCI 1:0:
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Please see the common PROBLEMS SECTION in the README
(EE) NVIDIA(0): additional information
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA graphics device!
(EE) Screen(s) found but none have a usable configuration.

Fatal server error:
no screens found

When reporting a problem related to a server crash, please send
the full server output, not just the last messages.
This can be found in the log file "/var/log/XFree86.0.log".
The latest files are attached.

I would appreciate any advice that would help me solve this problem. However, one thing I really do not want to do is to install another version of Linux if I can help it.

OS: Red Hat Linux Version 9 (Shrike)
