I wish I could use the proprietary driver.  But there isn't one yet.

I have a Quadro NVS 160M, Fedora 12, 64bit.  

nouveau works rather well out of the box, but I lose compositing and
many if not all of the 3D functions.


Blender does run, but has display update issues.  I'm not sure if that's
a driver or Blender issue.

Nobody believed that I could build a space station here.  So I built it anyway.
It sank into the vortex.  So I built another one.  It sank into the vortex.  
The third station burned down, fell over then sank into the vortex.  The fourth
station just vanished.  And the fifth station, THAT stayed!
