The former - what's the difference between these commands?

Haven't got that far - need to get past the driver crashing the box first!

Not really had a chance to play further - as I said, the fact that each
attempt takes the box down, requiring a reset and fsck means that it eats 25
minutes or so for each time I try it.

What it looks like to me is that that, for some reason, the driver is building
something that's broken, because it invariably crashes my box when I try to
use the nvidia driver (whether that's running sax2 [crashes as soon as it
tries to bring up the gui] or issuing 'switch2nvidia' and 'init 5').
