Default nVidia drivers and BiosBase

Can anyone tell me if the nVidia drivers honor the BiosBase xorg device option??

TIA

I don't think so.

Yeah, that gels with my testing. I really should have tested that first, instead of assuming. It means my code to shoehorn in a bios dump (ugly I know!) to resolve multi-card issues is moot, and hybrid graphics (yay Sony) users are still stuck without a (useful) solution to getting their nVidia cards running... and I guess I can safely assume that support for this option won't be added any time soon (yay closed-source).

In any case, thanks for the prompt reply.
