Cool Gforce 3 Ti-500 5 min boot up problem

I am currently running RH9 and I just installed the new nvidia drivers without problems except this 5 min boot up. There is an option to turn off tv-out in the XF86Config but I cant remember what it is. I thought is was something like:

option "IgnoreDisplayDevice" "Tv-Out" "DFS"

Does anyone know the proper syntax for this option? Thanks.

From the README:

Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "string"
This option tells the NVIDIA kernel module to completely
ignore the indicated classes of display devices when
checking what display devices are connected. You may
specify a comma-separated list containing any of "CRT",
"DFP", and "TV".

For example:

Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "DFP, TV"

will cause the NVIDIA driver to not attempt to detect
if any flatpanels or TVs are connected.

This option is not normally necessary; however, some video
BIOSes contain incorrect information about what display
devices may be connected, or what i2c port should be
used for detection. These errors can cause long delays
in starting X. If you are experiencing such delays, you
may be able to avoid this by telling the NVIDIA driver to
ignore display devices which you know are not connected.

NOTE: anything attached to a 15 pin VGA connector is
regarded by the driver as a CRT. "DFP" should only be
used to refer to flatpanels connected via a DVI port.
