Unhappy pny gforce 4 ti 4200 and red hat 9.0

i installed red hat linux on my computer and downloaded the nvidia driver. The installation ran problem-free. But now if I use the nvidia driver , there are a lot of graphic bugs. Sometimes there are blue,green and white pixels all over the screen. If I want to run a OpenGL application, the computer crashes.
It also crashes when I shutdown.

ps: sorry for my bad englisch

For anyone who may have seen this happen before, post up some details about your motherboard, which version of RedHat linux, which kernel version you have (see command below), and which nVidia driver version you installed (version numbers are in the .run filename).

Without these nobody can help you identify what the problem is, or how to fix it.

nVIDIA video driver RPMs for Fedora :: see yum repo at livna.org.
