I have several nvidia video cards on machines that are older than yours.
Nary a hiccup in the barrel. It did take several tries with the
"hardware drivers" app to finally get it to work though. Nouveau is a
ways off to become a replacement for the stock nvidia driver. I don't
have the xserver-xorg-video-nouveau package installed. I think I ran
into a conflict with it early in my fresh install of Lucid. Ric
