display driver problem

hi there

we have installed redhat 7.3 on our machine which has a nvidia quadro 4 agp(64 mb).the card was not configured during installation because it was not in the list.then we downloaded the driver package

from the nvidia website by selecting quadro 4 and installed it "sh NVIDIA..."
but still we have not got the proper resolution and we tried Xconfigurator and still we could not find our card listed.
we have now got this disgusting 640x480 8bit display

somebody please help
