Right, I read about that when I attempted to find the solution.
Unfortunately, if what I read is correct, that fix does not allow
installation of the Nvidia driver module.

The reason I upgraded the hardware was that the current computer won't
play full 1080 HD video on my 24" monitor. I don't know if the Nvida
driver would be better than the open source one for HD video, but I
occasionally play Chromium, which, unless I'm mistaken, requires the 3D

Any idea why PAE is not enabled by default? Several other distros seem to
have it enabled by default.
