Re: NVIDIA grpahics driver

Go here:

If you're running 32-bit, you'll need to recompile your kernel to get
rid of the 4K stacks patch and the Use Register Arguments (REGPARM)
option.  Compiling a vanilla 2.6.6rc2 with Fedora's .config as a starting
point worked for me. 

If you're running 64-bit, no kernel recompile is needed. 

In both cases you'll need to add this line to /etc/modprobe.conf:

alias char-major-195 nvidia

If you want to play UT2004 you'll want the patch listed here:

https://bugzilla.icculus.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1413

(search for .bz2) Until the official patch is available.  With it, UT2004
is solid on my Athlon 64 desktop with GeForceFX 5700 Ultra.
