Exclamation Issue recognizing EDID flags

I'm a noob to Linux and have spent the last two weeks trying to set it up on a new system I have.

System has AMD64 (3700+) with sata 3 hard drive, nForce4 SLI motherboard, NXGeForce6600LE (PCI Express) graphics, Atheros wireless, Hauppage 150 tuner card and 2 DVD drives.

I have gotten the system running and am trying to get the graphics card working...unfortunately, I haven't got an email system running on it (it would have to be command line, rather than graphical) so I cannot turn in a bug report.

I have patched the 8178 driver per the instructions and loaded it with my kernel (2.6.12 gentoo). When I run startx, I get a blank screen and then my screen goes into sleep mode. I have to reboot (ungracefully!) to get back to where I was.

I haven't figured out how to transfer the logs to another computer so that I can attach them to this email, but the key warnings that appear in the Xorg.0.log files indicate that the nVidia card could not find the boot device--

(WW) NVIDIA(0): No boot display device found! Assuming one CRT.

I have even forced it to DFP-0 and still get this message.

Later I get a
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Failure rading FlatPanel flags for DFP-0
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Unable to read EDID for display device DFP-0.

The driver then apparently scans through a bunch of potential video modes and chooses some.

It then states

(WW) NVIDIA(0): Unable to get display device DFP-0's EDID: cannot compute DPI
(WW) NVIDIA(0): from EDID.

The card then sets DPI to default (75,75) and continues.

Finally, in the last few lines of the log,

(WW) NVIDIA(0): WAIT (0, 1, 0x8000, 0x000005fd4, 0)
(II) NVIDIA(0): First mode initailized
(II) Loading extension NV-GLX

I know that the board works under WindowsXP, as this is a dual boot system, and (before I boogered up something else, I had kde running with the old (emerged from gentoo) glx drivers.)

Any help you can give is appreciated. Also, if you can suggest how to get the files either (a) off this computer to another one that has email or (b) onto my Windows NTFS partition, I'll attach them and submit the bug report.
