Yes I am.

As far as I know Icouldn't be using nv driver 1.2.0 with X.org 7.0, or could
I? But in fact I don't think this really matter as I already have X.org 7.1.
With X.org 7.0 it would choke on the RIVA configuration and it would eat all
the available CPU.

Is there any info I shall provide? Any suggestions on my next move?
