I did have DRI working breifly on an nforce2 board with a radeon 9000. 
I think it was CURRENT from around 10/30/03, with XFree86-Server-Snap 
version, but I don't remember for sure.  It may have been an 
earlier version of CURRENT.  I'm pretty sure it was XFree86 

Since then there have been drm commits to CURRENT, I've upgraded 
XFree86-Server to, and it no longer works.

If I have time this week I'll see if I can set up a serial console to 
grab some info to help the developers troubleshoot, but life is kind of 
hectic for me right now.  DRI isn't very important to me, so I've just 
disabled it for now...
