Default rh9 lockups with geforce ti 4200

Hi, I'm getting lockups using my geforce ti 4200 with redhat 9, nvidia driver 4363 and a dual head configuration. What happens is the mouse cursor will dissapear and the screen (both of them) will freeze with whatever they were displaying at the time. I cant find anyway to reproduce this, it just occurs randomly about every day or two. When this happens, I cant ctrl-alt-backspace or use the keyboard in anyway (or mouse), but i can ssh in from another computer and issue "killall -9 X" to restart X and then it works fine until the next lockup occurs. Other than this, X appears to be working perfectly. Also, I dont think this is a hardware problem because I dual boot with winxp on this computer and in windows there are no lockups at all.

If anyone has any idea what can be done to fix this, or at least point me in the right direction, it would be appreciated. Thanks.

I'm having a similiar problem with my GeForce 2 GTS but good luck in getting any help. Noone replied to my post. You may have to wait for a new release or revert to a 3xxx version.
