    Hi Nils, and all of you for your help. I will try the method you 
suggest because I know how to do it :-)

    Will report back with results. What I am trying to verify is that 
the problem with the nvidia GeForce 6100 might be because Intrepid does 
not let me, at least load the proper nvidia driver. This will become 
clear in a few minutes, I hope.
