Of course, I had to compile the kernel so the nvidia installer could build
its driver (couldn't find it on the nvidia.com site!), but my screen is now
where it should be - 1280x1024, using the NVIDIA Generic (unknown) card....
It does some strange things, like leave a vertical bar when I left arrow at
each stopping point in my gmail editor, but that clearsa as soon as I type
something. So it's not perfect, but what a difference!
Thanks! Now I can actually use this thing!
