The 1501 is a $50 laptop from 2006? i dont know that nvidia is the right
driver, I think it has ATI before AMD bought it. This would have been
around the time FreeBSD 7.0 was HEAD i think?
curious??? If this is the same 1501 that featured the first Dell computer
to use AMD chip then probably best to evaluate throwing it in the dumpster.
