The Wiki is a collaborative tool so we can use that. Once a page is 
started, others can add sections to it. It need not be publicly linked 
until ready for public consumption.

An outline before we start might be useful. There appears to be 3 methods:

1. Install direct from nvidia
2. Install from RPMForge - dkms/nvidia rpm
3. Install from ATrpms

A section covering each. The next (obvious) question a user will 
probably ask is which method should I use? I'm not best equipped to 
answer that or how best that is dealt with.

John - have you created a Wiki user account yet? Once you have, please 
post your Wiki username to the list and Ralph can get you added. Users 
don't initially have permissions to do anything until Ralph adds them (a 
practice designed to limit spam etc and hopefully not too restrictive to 
genuine contributors!).

Sorry, I'm not familiar with that so it won't be me :)
