    Got the same card, I feel your pain.
    Never even got that working at all, prolly just cause i'm still slightly new at Linux.

    It's awesome. I could really notice an improvement over 2.4. The new scheduler in it is great.. can compile stuff and do all my normal things (surf, watch tv, etc) at the same time and not notice any slow down. Haven't had anything break either.
