DVI LCD with nVidia GeForce2 MX400 video card?

I'm searching the archives but haven't found an answer yet.

Fedora Core 1
Asus nVidia GeForce2 MX400 video card
Hyundai L90D+ DVI/VGA LCD monitor

My vidio card and monitor each have both VGA and DVI connectors. The VGA hookups work fine but, for the life of me, I can't get the LCD to work with the DVI connectors. I downloaded and installed nVidia's latest drivers, etc. I've been editing the XF86Config file trying everything I have found on the web but the monitor stays blank. I'm not trying to use TwinView or dual heads at all (that's later if I can just get this "simple" setup working). Here's my latest attempt at a XF86Config file (the relevant parts):

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "SingleHead_mbj"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "DevInputMice" "AlwaysCore"

Section "Files"
RgbPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"
FontPath "unix/:7100"

Section "Module"
Load "dbe"
Load "extmod"
Load "fbdevhw"
Load "glx"
Load "record"
Load "freetype"
Load "type1"

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
VendorName "Hyundai"
ModelName "L90D+"
HorizSync 31.0 - 80.0
VertRefresh 56.0 - 75.0
Option "dpms"

Section "Device"
Identifier "nv0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "Asus"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce 2 MX400"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP"

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "nv0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024"

Section "DRI"
Group 0
Mode 0666

Any pointers to what I'm doing wrong would sure be appreciated! 8^)
