TV-Out Problem with NV11 Geforce2 Go in Fedora

i'm new to Linux, just installed Fedora 8 in my 5 years old laptop, DELL INSPIRON 8100 which is running nVidia NV11 GeForce2 Go.

i've been trying to get the TV-Out to work with my Sony TV via the Yellow Composite cable. it's working in Windows XP but it's not working in my Fedora 8, everytime i click the combinations of Fn+F8 to switch between displays the TV just blink once or twice then nothing happened.

can anyone please help me??
do i need to use the nvidia native driver?? where can i find it for GeForce2 Go??
just tell me if i need to show any informations..

Thank You..

That card needs the 96xx series legacy driver from Nvidia:

I'm not sure about your specific card, but I use xrandr to enable the TV-out on my Intel based laptop.
