Do we have a PBI made for this specific driver? We may want to do so, 
that way its pre-compiled and folks won't need to download system-source 
to build it.

Its kinda hidden now, but at the first boot if you don't take the 
auto-selected resolution, it brings up the GUI tool, which lets you set 
your own resolution. You can also select the "nvidia" driver, that way 
you have 3d enabled. I'm going to be cleaning up the logic behind this a 
bit this week also, so its easier to do.

Sounds good! I'm hoping to get most of the major bugs worked out this 
week, so hopefully we'll be more back on track with our normal builds. 
Still tracking down lots of issues from moving to Xorg 7.2 :)
