Re: Maybe I need a better video card? Editing xorg.conf?

Thanks so much for the great idea!  I see on their web site the latest
version is now:
(and for 64-bit: NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-275.28.run)

I'm not sure how to integrate this into Knoppix, however, and am concerned
the modified xorg.conf might cause problems when booting on non-Nvidia
machines.  And it adds one more item to the list of things to maintain
every time I upgrade to a new Knoppix version.

I think it would be much simpler to buy a new Knoppix-friendly video card
and let the autoconfig do its thing.
