Had the same problem on my dad's new machine. He was running a new
NVidia GeForce 5900 video card with a brand new ViewSonic A90f+ monitor.
It happened with both Red Hat 9 and Severn1. Booting to runlevel 3 and
then typing startx produced the same "out of range" results. The only
way I was able to get things working was after I managed to download and
install the NVidia drivers from their site. Driver "nv" still will not
work properly, but the driver "nvidia" runs with no trouble at all with
the exact same XF86Config file.
