Hey man, that's awesome that you got it to work. I didn't think to have you recompile the drivers since you have a clean install. Oh well, live and learn not to trust binary packages
Hey Ziphnor, have you tried recompiling the drivers like Hoggie?
If you need any help doing that, post back, or just read the Nvidia's README that's online, it's really good.
And post back any success (or failure).
