It's interesting to here you are having problems with the nvidia
binary drivers. I have been using them in both warty anf hoary (and
many other linux distros) with no problem what so ever. on a geforce 2
mx, geforce fx 5600, and now my 6600gt. I have never had a lock up or
any problems at all, even during intense 3d games like doom3 and
unreal tourny 2k4.
It may be another part of your system that is causing the problems.
Maybe faulty memory? (since the onboard card uses your system memory)
