Can gxine be moved to recommends as well?

Ah, something else than 'ok'... Well, it isn't Xubuntu specific and the
driver loads fine after installing it with the restricted drivers tool,
Getting a dual screen set up requires the use of nvidia-settings under
the root account, to overwrite xorg.conf.
This is obviously not what the *ubuntu devs want, but since there is no
other way to graphically configure your nvidia video card, this will be
held 'against' Linux... Hopefully xorg 7.3 will fix this...

It has something to do with my own PC/bios. It seems that since I
plugged a SATA disk next to an IDE one, grub tends to enumerate them
wrongly on boot. A simple edit in menu.lst fixed this...

Thank you for giving me something to test!
