OK, I tried this on my Powerbook G4 12" 867MHz (the 1st generation PB12)
and X starts fine in 800x600x16 bit using the nv driver. 

 Probing for video card:   NVIDIA GeForce 4 (generic)
 Probing for monitor type:   Unknown monitor
 Probing for mouse type:   Generic - 3 Button Mouse (PS/2)

Great work.
