Default NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run problem

Hi, everyone. I am a new user to Linux. I am using Redhat 9.0 right now.
I had just installed NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run according to the README file. However, I was not able to get X-server started.
Here is part of the .log file:
(EE) NVDIA(0): no HorizSync values remaining
(EE) NVDIA(0): no VertSync values remaining
(EE) NVDIA(0): no modes remaining for display device CRT-0

Any suggestion?

Thanks in advance

Just to reveal the problem better, here is my XF86Config file:
# XFree86 4 configuration created by redhat-config-xfree86

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Default Layout"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "DevInputMice" "AlwaysCore"
EndSection

Section "Files"

# RgbPath is the location of the RGB database. Note, this is the name of the
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db"). There is normally
# no need to change the default.
# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.
RgbPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"
FontPath "unix/:7100"
EndSection
Section "Module"
Load "dbe"
Load "extmod"
Load "fbdevhw"
Load "glx"
Load "record"
Load "freetype"
Load "type1"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"

# Specify which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with xset(1))
# Option "Xleds" "1 2 3"
# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
# Option "XkbDisable"
# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
# lines below (which are the defaults). For example, for a non-U.S.
# keyboard, you will probably want to use:
# Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
# Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"
#
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# or:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
#
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"
# Or if you just want both to be control, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps"
#
Identifier "Keyboard0"
Driver "keyboard"

You may need to reread the nvidia README

For example,
Driver "nv" should be Driver "nvidia"

Plus what monitor do you have? CRT or DFP?

I changed these things as indicated by README file.
i.e. change "nv" to "nvidia"
add load "glx"
and delete load "drl"
The monitor i am using is CRT

can you double check the frequency details direct from your monitor manual?

Are you saying I should change the values of
HorizSync 31.5 - 48.5
VertRefresh 50.0 - 70.0
in XF86Config file?
Is it safe to do so?

Thanks

it is important to make the values the same as what the monitor reports (or what is in the manual)
