No, in fact it isn't so different, the clue was to have an XF86Config file at
the starting, with a vga or fbdev driver and replacing that driver by nvidia.
I'm not giving up.
I hope SuSE is getting ready for this and I hope they read us because new mobo
are comming, dual with Via chipsets and memory being bursted easily to 400Mhz.
