Still would not have helped, even if I switched from 'nvidia' to the 'nv'.
Once again, when I updated to the 126.96.36.199-0.3-bigsmp kernel, I didn't get an
initrd image, so I couldn't boot that either.
I'm compiling my own kernel, and should get an initrd in the process as well.
If this doesn't work I'm got the latest Kubuntu 7.10 ready, just need to
backup a few files, and away I go.
Sick to say, I'm hoping my kernel fails, I'm totally disgusted with OpenSuse.
