Currently I booted to test3-mm2 with the bugoff patch, and using the x
nv drivers and everything in the video dept is cool. I see by dmesg
that the vesafb isn't being used so I'll take that out in addition
the next time I switch to the nvidia drivers.

I might add that test3-mm2 appeared to handle this mornings amanda run
more like it would have run under 2.4, a pretty nice improvement over
the bare test3, which appeared to shove amanda to the back of the
queue most of the time.

From dmesg, snippets:
