Sounds like you have the EXACT same machine I just got.
Make sure you have the latest XFree86 servers, I think it's 126.96.36.199.
Just go to their site, www.xfree86.org, and check it out. Download the
SVGA and VGA files, along with the XF86Setup and the 75 and 100 dpi
fonts. I think that'll do it.
Then run XF86Setup and you can select your card; although it's called
STB nVIDIA 128 (which I think is the same as the card we have.)
Good luck. It works for me.
