I am not talking about flakey hardware, I am talking about the first
solutions for running the nividia kernel in a dom0. Those lead to
spontaneous reboots at least twice a day ...

So if you say that it now is working and is stable - I have nothing
against that article on the wiki. If we have to slap a warning sign on
the article "This can crash your machine", I'd rather not :)
