Description of problem:
During installation, my Geforce4-MX card was detected as a Geforce4.  After
installing, X would not start properly.  When I re-ran the installer choosing
Geforce2-MX as my video card (which I understand is a closer match), it worked
great.

I was under the impression that all Nvidia cards used a single "nv" driver, and
that this sort of thing shouldn't happen, but nevertheless, it did.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get yerself a budget Geforce4-MX video card
2. Let Phoebe's installer detect the card as a Geforce4
3. Watch X lock up.
    

Actual Results:  X locks up.

Expected Results:  The Geforce4-MX series should detect as Geforce4-MX's, or at
least Geforce2-MX's.  Even if the X lockup cannot be reproduced, there should be
a distinction.
