I guess this is the best solution, having access to the same
build-environment the rest of the Planet is made up with.  However, I
can't find anything gcc2** in this RH-8.0 - only gcc 3.2.  Maybe i
left it somewhere on the CD uninstalled.  Does anyone know where to
get hold of all of it?

Would this force me to also rebuild/recompile existing and upcoming
apt-got binary-apps from the sources on the Planet?  I'd like to stay
synced with the standard dist from PlanetCCRMA.

Well, of course this would solve my immediate problem (the driver in
question is located here: http://www.nvidia.com/view.asp?PAGE=linux
