Default using 96.43.01 with Solaris 10

Hi all.

I am struggling to get 1024x768 resolution out of Solaris 10 (version 6/06) on my old PIII, using a GeForce II MX100/200 AGP card running a CMV 1515 LCD monitor.
Initially, I screwed up my xorg.conf, but was still able to get X running satisfactorily using Xsun instead. However, I simply couldn’t get anything higher than 800x600x16-bit color no matter what entries I tried. Eventually I downloaded and installed the nVidia x86 drivers – version 96.43.01 – and on the spur of the moment gave the ‘sample’ xorg.conf file a spin. Much to my surprise, it worked (see below):

However, although I can set the color depth to 24-bit for some reason I cannot get anything higher than 640x480. Can anyone suggest what I can add to boost my resolution? I was surprised because without horizontal and vertical rates entered I didn’t think it would work at all...
Many thanks!

Default using 96.43.01 with Solaris 10 (solved)

With a bit more fiddling around - plus a few dividers added to stop me putting things in the wrong section(!) - THIS worked
Note 'glx' commented out...
