I have had problems trying to install the new Xorg on Amd64 box with 
Nvidia card and also old trio.

I see many posts of issues on this on Questions List. Can I run the new 
Xorg on the Amd64 with nvidia or do I have to use i386?

Also is it possible to use an older version of Xorg to make a card work 
   that was working on the older version. And can the hal setup be 
eliminated if it causes the video to fail?

I  want to try the previously working box ( was Running FreeBSD 7* ) as 
a desktop with 8*.

Thanks for any help.
