For the people with nvidia graphic cards some information on somethings that I 
have noticed.

I have a Elsa Gloria II which is based on the RIVA/TNT II chip set by Nvidia. 
The Nvidia driver works fine for me except in the following conditions.

1) I had a PCI usb card that I placed in the machine. The card has a OPTi chip 
set. For some reason this cause the Nvidia driver to lock up the machine. 
When I swithced to the Xorg driver no lock ups. I removed the card and 
switched back to the Nvidia driver and everything was fine.

2) This one I have found no work around or even have a clue as to why it does 
it, but if I use the line In on my sound card to transfer music from tape to 
cd it locks up. I don't even need to try anything other that pluging in the 
line in?? My machine is an HP Visualize X-Class PIII with  sound on board. I 
use the css driver, I believe that is Crystal.

I'm just passing this along in that it my help some one figure out why the 
driver works for some and not for others.
