> Do you have a *nVIDIA* or *ATI* graphics card? Do you want to help
> ensure users have a smooth experience if they choose to use the
> proprietary drivers?
> We are looking for committed volunteers to test nVIDIA and ATI
> proprietary drivers on a weekly basis. The goal of this testing is to
> catch regressions early in the cycle, and fix bugs before they reach a
> major audience.
> If you want to be part of the team you will need:
> 1. A computer with an ATI (R600 or newer) or nVIDIA (GeForce series 2)
> graphics card
> 2. A spare partition on that system
>  * If you don't have a spare partition you can easily create one.
> 3. One hour of your time per week
> 4. An Internet connection
> If you want to take part in this adventure, please, send me an email
> (ara AT ubuntu DOT com) with the exact model of your graphics card, and
> I will get back to you with detailed instructions.
> Thanks for helping making Ubuntu even better!
> P.S. This project goal is to test the proprietary drivers. If you're
> interested in testing the free drivers, we don't need installation
> testing but help is always welcome. Check how at the Ubuntu X team page [1].

Is this only for the Nvidia Geforce 2 series, or for the Geforce 2
series and later?
