 The initial install refused to active X.   After checking the net
without result I re-installed having the same result without X
Remembering having read about dpkg-reconfigure I did so and this time
declined the offer to include a software frame buffer as well as the
hardware for my Nvidia card.   The install completed and I now have a
functional system, with 2.6.18-486 kernel built with module assistant.
I do not however have a functional version (APT) of BLENDER (2.4.a) I
think? I just have a bouncing icon which disappears after several
seconds without starting the program. Everything else is great!

Except Blender..... Geeeee whiz..... Darn it!

This bug should either be closed or reassigned to X packages (noone
will probably be able to do anything if the video card isn't really
supported) but certainly not tagged with an invalid tag and kept in
D-I bugs.

Given that this installation was complete I think that closing the bug
is the best option. Another bug should be reported against X packages,
with the appropriate information (type of video card, X logs, etc.)
