SubjectRe: PROBLEM: kernel panic

I thought that might do it, it does seem to work. I edited the driver
line in my xorg.conf
from nvidia to nv and then,
<alt><ctrl> F1
login as root
/etc/init.d/gdm stop
/etc/init.d/gdm start

It came back up with the same flashing crap on the second monitor, so I
did it again with
the 2nd monitor turned off altogether, and I'll see how long it will run
on the single monitor
without the nvidia driver without crashing (maybe forever...).
