 When I boot PCBSD 8.0-RC amd64 on my Dell Precision T5500 desktop with
 NVIDIA Quadro NVS 295 display adapter and Hitachi HDT721032SLA360 hard
 disk drive, I get the following message:

 FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE-p2 (PCBSD) # 10: Thu Jan 7 14:30:53 EST 2010

 -PC-BSD is Loading... Please wait...
 Detecting X Setup...

 ERROR: Failed to start GUI Installer with detected driver... Trying VESA
 mode...

 cp: /root/cardDetect/XF86Config - usrlocal.compat: No such file or
 directory
 ERROR: Failed to start GUI Installer with VESA mode...
 Please check your settings in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file

 [Press Enter to Continue]

 When I pressed Enter, I was shown a text menu with Start Graphical
 Installer, Start Graphical Installer in VESA mode, Utilites and Reboot as
 options. When I selected "Start Graphical Installer" or "Start Graphical
 Installer in VESA mode", I was brought back to this same text menu.

 Does PCBSD support NVIDIA Quadro series of display adapters yet?
