Milton part 3
OK, maybe my rant was premature.
As of right now, I'm successfully downloading the 126.96.36.199 kernel (make that done downloading). So either the most-recent nForce drivers are less sucky than the last time I did this, or the real pain is that they don't work properly on 2.6 kernels. I'm re-downloading the freshest build from nVidia just to be safe - it looks to be a couple months more recent than the copy I found lurking on one of my old Miscellaneous Junk CDs.
So... maybe this will go nicer than last time. But before I jinx all of that, I should go make sure that I can actually build and deploy 188.8.131.52 properly...
Oh, and screen is just bloody amazing. I swear, if I didn't have a dual-head box for Windows, I'd want something to emulate screen. Nothing is quite as handy as going between install docs and the actual install process with a single key combo.
