I'm having the same problem. Well now, I'm having the same problem because I'm having all the problems that can be had installing the drivers for my nvidia G210 with ubuntu, fedora, debian. I've followed carefully all instructions from nvidia installer README, a lot of different posts, and I can not install the card. I need some 3D acceleration for paraview, so I think I will by an older nvidia card (drivers 173), and try to, because with this new nvidia cards, I can not find a solution. (I think that there is a lot of people having the same problems: new nvidia + new computers + new linux kernels = http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/imag...es/pirate1.gif
But yes, I also have the problem of not recognizing the nvidia card bios. If you find a solution please let me know.
