Unhappy Poor image quality and shadowing with GeForce 4 and Fedora RC6

HI,

Not sure if anyone can help me with this. Just setup Fedora RC6 with the intent of making a media server, using an old GeForce4 nvidia card, connected to a Panason TH-42PWD7 42" Plasma monitor. I updated to the most recent drivers using Yum from the livna repository.

I finally got the resolution correct and changed the fonts so they are now readable. BUT, i am continuing to have a problem with the quality of the display. I am seeing a few problems:

1) There are some vague, flickering horizontal lines across the desktop
2) Digital pictures look horrible. People look extremely orange, colors are generally very neon, and there is vague shadowing in places.
3) on the desktop, icons cast a horizontal shadow on the screen (not just icons, but that is one example).

Displaying these same images connecting my xp laptop to the same display, they look fabulous. As you can imagine, can't much use this as a media server if it can't display media

Anyway, i would much appreciate any advice you can give.

Thanks,
Brandon
