>2. Update on Upgrades:

>a clean install. On those two same computers, RC2 flawlessly
>upgraded the RC1 install to 7.1.1-RC2.
>3. Nvidia Legacy Driver Crashes:
>RC2 crashes when attempting to install Nvidia 71.86.09 to the legacy
>Nvidia Vanta card. I'm glad to hear you are working on
>this. Perhaps a downgrade to 71.86.06 which had been reliable.
I installed RC2 on a spare SATA drive on my home PC which has a
Gefore 5600. Upon first loading the NVidia driver (173.x if I
remember right), during display setup, it took a dump and the screen
became garbled with red flashing boxes. AFter a reboot and trying
again, everything worked fine. Did you by chance try rebooting and
loading the drivers once more?
>4. Intel Video Success:
>RC2 works great on Intel 82855 chipset ("ExtremeGraphics 2").
