Hi Zander,

How does the real newby know if this "ld" (wether he looks at the read-me file or not) is installed by default with a common distro like a Mandrake 9.2 (downloaded not boxed) ?

How could he even guess were to get, then to install, this binutils package when he's in front of the $ or the black screen of Xfree due to the basic GForce 4 driver.

Even if the guies here at nVidia seem to do a lot for open-source users, made the driver package easier to install, I feel a bit (!) bitter (in french we call that "spiting in the soup")...

It's really a pain in the a.. to get all that unices working.

It's not your fault, I'm sorry to be drily... thanks for contibuting anyway.
