Ow -- you're right, I was withholding information.
Looking back, I'd assembled it from
stock 2.4.20 plus the 2.4.21-pre3 patch.
I just checked the latest kernel.org prerelease
of 2.4.21 (2.4.21-rc2). It no longer includes
any CONFIG_BLK_DEV_NVIDIA option --
the nForce IDE driver that was present in pre3
seems to be gone in rc2. So the nvidia.o collision is
probably a non-issue for everyone except
ham-handed tinkerers like me, who deserve what we get.
If somebody adds it back to the main kernel
line they'll probably give it a different name.
