Same here, I'm running FC3 fully updated PIII 866 on a Tyan s1854 MB.
GForce video card still using the stock "nv" driver. I've noticed on
most bootups this is the case, but not always. Makes trying to install
Nvidia drivers a little interesting. It's almost like I can see some of
the effects of X even when in the console. This has been happening since
the fresh install.
