If this noovoo driver works so pefectly why then have I had to use
"nomodeset" when installing Milestone #1 and #2, and then when booting into
the install, otherwise I got nowhere with the install and then the first
boot? In fact, I had to add "nomodeset" in menu.lst so as to be able to
login without going thru hoops to do so (until I installed the proper
nVidia driver)? And my video card is not something bought at an antique
shop: it is a Geforce 7600 GT card and uses the latest nVidia 295.33 driver.

Yes, many people have to do that.

People are asking every week in the forums about how they install openSUSE
because they get a black screen. They think openSUSE is bad or something.

Then somebody explain how to do the modeset trick and install Nvidia
drivers, and things work for them.
