I was the single monitor issue, on the single monitor it does not
reboot unless you set probe_all_gpu's *BUT* it does fail to reconize
all nVidia cards (so does nv)... as far I can tell neither drive
understands 64bit io space and PCI/AGP... the clue is the addr
conflicts that everyone seems to get... btw I think it might of fried
my 8k but at least gives me vesa with no weird video probs on the 5200
GT I have now (1024x768 ;-()).
