The nouveau driver has a LONG way to go. At best it renders a hot nVidia 
card, with a gig of Vram, into a S-10 Virge POS. I played merry hell 
trying to get the nVidia driver correctly installed, after I cleanly 
installed 12.10 Had I not been through this many times before I would 
have been out of luck. The new method of installing additional drivers 
does not automatically load the kernel headers files, so that the module 
can be built.

There is the complete step by step. Enjoy, Ric
