Default X crash oddities Visiontek Gf4+RedHat9/mandrake

This is very, very off, has me climbing the walls.
X crashes, with an error of 'no usable configurations' (more below)
when using the nvidia 4496 and 4363 drivers under Red Hat 9 (same error using 4496 under MDK 9.1 and 9.2)

System specs:
Asus A7N8X-DX Motherboard
Visiontek GeForce4 Ti4200 128MB AGP
Sony CPD-E200 monitor
From the XF86config file:
Section "Monitor"
	Identifier   "Monitor0"
	VendorName   "Monitor Vendor"
	ModelName    "Sony CPD-E200/E200E"
	HorizSync    30.0 - 85.0
	VertRefresh  48.0 - 120.0
	Option	    "dpms"

Section "Device"
	Identifier  "Videocard0"
	Driver      "nvidia"
	VendorName  "Videocard vendor"
	BoardName   "NVIDIA GeForce 4 (generic)"
	VideoRam    131072
	Option	    "NvAgp" "1"

Section "Screen"
	Identifier "Screen0"
	Device     "Videocard0"
	Monitor    "Monitor0"
	DefaultDepth     24
	SubSection "Display"
		Depth     24
		Modes    "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
Note the refresh rates under the monitor are H: 30-85 V:48-120
Now the Log file from that config:
(II) Module ddc: vendor="The XFree86 Project"
	compiled for 4.3.0, module version = 1.0.0
	ABI class: XFree86 Video Driver, version 0.6
(WW) NVIDIA(0): The user specified VertRefresh "48.000-120.000" has been

(II) UnloadModule: "nvidia"
(II) UnloadModule: "ddc"
(II) Unloading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libddc.a
(II) UnloadModule: "vgahw"
(II) Unloading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libvgahw.a
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

Fatal server error:
no screens found
Note the new values 161-255
it makes X puke, this happens with both drivers in multiple distros, i'm thinking the monitor's the culprit. at theis point.

X runs fine with the 'nv' red hat default drivers in operation, but pukes otherwise, with the 4496 drivers, it kills the framebuffer too, the 43x doesnt do that. HELP!!!

When running the 'nv' driver does the log show your defined refresh rates are accepted or are they also changed?

Option "dpms"

should be (according to man XF86Config)
Option "DPMS"
