Xorg 7.1 and Legacy Nvidia Drivers

I say in the newsletter that the stabilization of Xorg 7.1 was being
held up until there where updated drivers for Nvidia that added
support for this version. So does this mean that you MUST use the
latest Nvidia driver to use Xorg 7.1? I know that I had an issue with
the libraries not getting stuck in the right spot using legacy drivers
with Xorg 7, but I assume there is some additional issue here am I

My problem is that I cannot use any driver after 7664 with my Geforce4
MX460, despite the fact that it is listed as one of the supported
boards on the newer driver. Every time I try it, my screen goes blank
and the system completely locks up.

So I guess I have two questions:

Does anyone know how to make 7664 work with Xorg 7.1 (I haven't tried it yet)?

Does anyone know of some configuration I might be doing wrong that is
preventing the new drivers from working?
