Ah yes, quite right.  I'm mixing up my Nvidia laptop and my ATI desktop 
again.  :)  That said, I switched to the Radeon drivers on ATI, used 
AIGLX and everything works fine.  XGL is easier but sloooow.

That said, Google Earth will not work with my setup.  :)  Not a biggie 
as it does work on my Nvidia laptop.  Something else to note CJ.  Anyone 
have hints on how to get that working?
