No, I am saying your going to have to rebuild with the
June drivers and _see_if_it_works_.

If that locks up, well then as Nvidia wrote those drivers,
you can call them on their support line.  Please report
back here and let us know how this works out - a lot of
people are avoiding purchasing that chipset or boards with
that chipset because Nvidia don't supply programming info,
and nobody really knows how well Nvidia is going to support
