    On my rc version of Intrepid with 130 Updates this exists but is 
broken like this:

1. You go to Hardware Drivers and there is nothing to help you with 
which one to use. There are 4 driver packages offered and I tried the 
one recommended for some reason I think 177...

2. Sign in as root and the big square panel gets a small panel in the 
middle that has 0% shown to begin. And it stays at 0% while the download 
is happening. I can see the Internet is busy and the hard drive is 
getting written to. But the panel stays at 0%.

3. Then the panel disappears and the big panel wants you to start the 
nVidia driver. I clicked but no luck. It is broken.

4. So the Intrepid rc with 130 Updates is still not able to support a 
nVidia computer.
