Arrow BSD, and AMD-64 Support

I submit that there would be a much greater interest from the
{Free, Net,Open}BSD users if the nVidia excellent products were
supported on their platforms.

I, for one, am stepping forward and volunteer to port any and all drivers
to said operating systems. Being that my religious zeal is expressed
away from my computer, I am willing to abide by any NDA necessary.

To the best of my knowledge, there is some FreeBSD support for the
i386 mode in FreeBSD on some drivers, and that is it. AMD-64 port
is needed for the Graphics card (my 7800 will not work with the Xorg
driver, for example), and some typical politics is probably behind the
migration from XFree86 to X.org, although I found the XFree86 driver
to run the 7800GT, but the X.org will not.

While some BSD supports some aspects of the nV product line,
not everything is supported on all O/S.

Talked too long... Ready to do.
