Could I ask, does anyone here know the reason (even in general) that the Nvidia
driver isn't working on the i386?

I mean, I was wondering what might be my next project ... I have the machinery,
and the source code is totally available, it's not a matter of Nvidia giving out
a binary-only module, right?  So, is anything more known?
