nvidia geforce 4 mx TvOut possible???

Can Tv-Out be mayed to work on the geforce 4 mx video card.
Does NVTV work with this card when i tried to use it all i get is a blank moniter No TvOut and hours of headaches
found the directions on nvidia site for setting tv out myself found the README and the directions involve changing the X configuration file
these settings caused blank screen before with NVTV
if i change the config file it is permanent right? so if i get a black screen there is no way to recover ?Have just gotten linux mdk9.1working right after a month of pulling myhair out and dont want to screw it up . Any input would help.

Thanks Erik
