No failure - X and KDE are up and running. I get this message from dmesg:
0: nvidia: loading NVIDIA Linux x86_64 nvidia.o Kernel Module 1.0-4499 Wed Sep 17 17:03:05 PDT 2003
0: NVRM: not using NVAGP, AGPGART is loaded!!
When it was set to the default it would just give me a blank screen when the Nvidia splash would try to load.
