A word of warning with the nvidia driver: it's important to use the
driver with a "matching" XFree86 server. AFAIK, the current nvidia
drivers work with all version of XFree86 v4.3.x, but NOT with v4.4.x.
Apparently, there is some version-checking support in the X server
which could detect such mismatches, but the nvidia driver doesn't seem
to do that and as a result, it will load into XFree86 v4.4.xx just
fine, except that it will then sooner or later crash with a segfault.
