Default need a walkover for installation of 8178

For SuSE specific installation instructions, please see http://www.suse.de/~sndirsch/nvidia-...ler-HOWTO.html; for basic configuration instructions, please see http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/L...hapter-03.html.

There are currently no open bugs specifically against 1.0-8178, SuSE-9.3 and a GeForce 6800GS.

Thanks,
