I'm getting errors when I try to load the NVdriver. I now have two copies
of the NVdriver -- one in /lib/modules/2.4.18 and the other in
/lib/modules/2.4.20. They are both the same size according to md5sum and
yet the 2.4.20 won't load (with insmod).

On the bright side, I did get my wireless working!
	- boot into the new kernel
	- cd /usr/src/modules/pcmcia-cs
	- make config (use all defaults assuming correct link from
	  /usr/src/linux to the current kernel)
	- make all
	- make install
	- /etc/init.d/pcmcia restart
	- <enter> to get the prompt back
	- lsmod to check for correct modules loaded
	- ping www.google.com to confirm the network is up

Et voila!

Now for the video card...
