Hi, sorry you are having issues.
You might try using this xorg.conf file
Let us know how it goes!
If that isn't your exact device... take a look at
This is a very helpful resource.

It is helpful to describe what 'serious problems' means.  Can you boot? 
what does the screen look like?  Is it simply black?

You may need a yaboot parameter, or to download the proprietary nvidia
