Of course security is a concern. Otherwise I'd spend a lot of money on an insecure, propriety OS full of really cool baubles. : )
I think the output of dmesg is telling me my driver does not support the cards:
nouveau 0000:03:00.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 24 (level, low) -> IRQ 24
nouveau 0000:03:00.0: setting latency timer to 64
nouveau 0000:03:00.0: Unsupported chipset 0x0c1c00a1
nouveau 0000:03:00.0: PCI INT A disabled
nouveau: probe of 0000:03:00.0 failed with error -22
nouveau 0000:04:00.0: enabling device (0002 -> 0003)
nouveau 0000:04:00.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 30 (level, low) -> IRQ 30
nouveau 0000:04:00.0: setting latency timer to 64
nouveau 0000:04:00.0: Unsupported chipset 0x0c1c00a1
nouveau 0000:04:00.0: PCI INT A disabled
nouveau: probe of 0000:04:00.0 failed with error -22
However, since this is a desktop system and not a production server, Wheezy is an option that I had already wondered about. In fact, I already had downloaded it before posting. Normally I exhaust all options before asking for help, but with my schedule this and next week I opted to see if there was an easy solution that I had just overlooked.
I will probably come in tomorrow to install Wheezy, and I will report back.
Thanks to everyone for the help so far!
