    In the release notes it says:

The 71 and 96 series of proprietary nVidia drivers, as provided by the 
nvidia-glx-legacy and nvidia-glx packages in Ubuntu 8.04, are not 
compatible with the X.Org included in Ubuntu 8.10.

    This means the nVidia drivers that work so well in Gutsy and Hardy 
are NOT AVAILABLE in Intrepid.

Unless you know more than I do it seems my computer and thousands others 
will not be able to use Intrepid.

Very sad.
