Well, when the nVIDIA screen pops up (before login and between
logins), it says "BETA DRIVER" right below the nVIDIA logo.

If I do downgrade (which I may well do), where do I get the right
driver?  I pulled these from rpmforge after my old driver didn't seem
to like the new monitor.

I'm all for not stressing the monitor - it's stressing me!
