Unhappy nvidia drivers bugged with FX 5600 ?

I am an advanced Linux user.
I have a NVIDIA FX 5600 video card.
# lspci
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV31 [GeForce FX 5600] (rev a1)
# lspci -n
01:00.0 Class 0300: 10de:0312 (rev a1)

My card works fine with XFree86 nv driver.
My motherboard model is ASUS A7A 266.
My processor is AMD Athlon 1400 MHz.
My version of XFree86 is
I tried NVIDIA drivers 4496, 4620 and 5328.
I tried on Debian GNU/Linux woody(stable) and sid(unstable).
I tried on a kernel 2.4.22 and 2.6.0

NVIDIA Drivers installation was not so hard. I tested with the nvidia installation and compiled manually.

My big problem is that I start XFree86, no nvidia logo but the screen is black and full of white and colored strange characters. And the same result in all cases (driver verions, kernel versions, distributions).
I obtain this type of freezed screen:


In XFree86 logs, all seems to work ! No error logs !
And I must to kill XFree86 with a ssh connection...

I have FC1 w/ 2.6.0, XF4.3 and 53.28 and so far no problem...it boots nicely.
Haven't tried Enemy Territory yet, though.

Yeeaahh !!
I resolved my problem !
It seems that AGPART bugged...
I put in my XFConfig-4:
Option "NvAgp" "1"

$ glxgears
10064 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2012.800 FPS
11140 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2228.000 FPS

Finally I am with kernel 2.6.0, Debian GNU/Linux sid, and package XFree experimental 4.3, and NVIDIA drivers 5328.
