Default GE FORCE 6150 LE on Compaq presario black screen

I have loaded the lates 9755 driver on RedHat 7.3 Compaq Presario with GE FORCE 6150 built-in graphics.
The same XF86Config with vesa drive works.
When I put "nvidia" , to get the new driver, I get BLACK SCREEN when Xserver starts.
Log file does not show any problem.

Your distro is too old to run a recent nvidia driver, you have to upgrade.

whig, I'm not sure how you came to that conclusion. In theory, the nvidia driver should work fine with RH-7.3. However, without seeing an nvidia-bug-report.log, its impossible to speculate on what is failing.

The 2002 RH 7.3 Release Notes show kernel 2.4.18 and XFree86 4.2.0. The 9755 is a bit too new for that...

There is only one nvidia-installer.log, no other nvidia specific logs.
XF86Free.0.log did not list any problems. That is after I rebooted the system (ALT-CTL-DELETE), since (ALT-CTL-BACKSPACE) did not exit Xserver.
I tried 9755 and 9746 drivers with identical results.
Is there anything that supports GEFORCE LE 6150 that is old enough to run on RedHat 7.3?
