Default can beta 9742 (or any other nvidia driver)+GTX8800+Apple Cinema be hacked to work ?

I'm stuck with this hardware, have to put it to work (no acceleration needed), but the drivers so far are broken/don't support GTX8800.

any ideas?

The next 1.0-97xx driver will resolve the known bugs with this hardware.

Thanks,
Lonni

If the Apple display can be hooked up using an analog cable, you can use the 1.0-9742 BETA driver.

I'd like to know too, but you know how rare ETAs are given out in the software/hardware world, and when they are they are often far off the mark.

I also would like to see this fixed.

I have a GTX8800 and the Dell 30" LCD. It is killing me to not be able to use my new, top of the line, $600 dollar video card.

I am stuck with my 7950 GX2
