Default X hangs on startup w/ 1.0-4349

After starting X the computer hangs with random colors on the screen.

My computer is:
Redhat 9 (workstation install)
Athalon 2000+
GA-VAX (KT400 w/ 8x)
512 MB DDR 333
GeForce 4 ti 4200 VIVO 8x

I'm using the new 1.0-4349 nvidia drivers. I tried the unified driver installer and also compiling the kernel module and the glx module.

Here is the relevant part of /var/log/messages:

Does it work with AGP disabled?

Oops, I hadn't tried that.

Yes; now it works fine.

Thanks.

PS: Still crashes with 'Option "NvAgp" "1"'

Look additional to the thread "AGP 3.0/KT400 support?" could be the same problem.

Good Luck
