Thank you. Since I was not aware that Nvidia has split their drivers,
I was still under the impression that the Nvidia driver supported all
Nvidia cards. So course it didn't occur to me to read the README to
check on this. But with RPMs, you don't get the README until after
you've installed the RPM, a nasty chicken and egg problem.

I was rapidly coming to this conclusion. I have entered Bug 1553 at
Livna on this.
