I'm glad that some people are using Nouveau and it is working well.  I
would like to also, but it does not work with my system. I've tried to
get it fixed (mostly through the Ubuntu forums here:

The same issue exists in Fedora 12 and 13.  I'm content to wait on this
one and will probably try again with FC14 and Ubuntu Maverick.  
Regards, Geoff
