NVIDIA drivers fail on install on SUSE 11.0 and 11.2. The screen that the
correct driver projects ends about 3 inches below what I can see on my monitor.
My only solution is to avoid putting SUSE 10, SUSE 11 or SUSE 11.2 on any
computers with the NVIDIA.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Always fails on any install. I've repeated this at least 6 times.
Actual Results:
The bottom 20 percent of all screens is hidden and can not be seen.
Any user will have to choose another Operating System because it can not be
adjusted or fixed under SUSE 11.2 or even 11.

Expected Results:
You should be able to see the entire screen and the control bar at the bottom
of the screen.

SUSE 10 does not recognize the NVIDIA at all on install. SUSE 11 failed and I
did not report the bug because I could not get a full screen to see the control
SUSE 11.2 fails too and there is no way to correct it once Yast decides to use
the NVIDIA drivers.
