I agree with Philipp. The nvidia kernel module is already loaded from
the 7300 and that is all that matters. Your existing xorg.conf will
work fine. You should just be able to take the 7300 out and put the
8600 in and hit go. (and yes, this is one situation where you will
have to restart linux...)

If you want to test it before jumping into xdm, just boot to runlevel
3 after the install and check with sax2.

ALSO!: cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.7300 before shutting
down to do the install. (just in case..)

Shutting down? You mean I can't hot-swap a PCIe card??

(Just kidding!)
