Default Re: Adding nVidia driver to liveCD?

Theoretically it's just a matter of building the right modules using that kernel and headers, and including them in the ISO file. Because of licensing "problems" many distributions choose not to.
The alternative open-source nvidia driver "nouveau" should be able to handle your card just fine aswell. Nouveau is enabled in many kernels and live discs, including Fedora. Although the 3d library is usually left out because of stability issues, you can run a desktop at all the resolutions your monitor supports. Should you find that you are running nouveau and are not getting the resolutions you need, these forums are not the right place to ask. Check nouveau.freedesktop.org for more information on that.
It will probably be easier to find a live disc with nouveau enabled than building one with nvidia.
