It worked! Wonderful! Thanks for your help.
Another problem arose when using the driver from nvidia.com. I am not getting 3d support. WHen I start sax2, I see the following pop-up message
Message: 3D acceleration not supported
Sax2 cannot offer activation of the 3d subsystem because your graphics card/driver doesn't support 3d
I did not get this message when using the SUSE RPMs. Should I just try the RPMs instead, and add in the xorg.conf options line you suggested above? the driver from nvidia.com is more uptodate (higher version #) so I think I would prefer to use it. Perhaps there is a 'hack' to get 3d working correctly?
