RE[11]: Question

So what? They're much older cards, and I specifically stated that older variants like the GTS, 256 etc. (and they pre-date Linux support by a long way) weren't supported,

You really have no idea what you're talking about, do you? nVidia's page for the v1.0-1251 driver even says These XFree86 binary drivers provide optimized hardware acceleration of OpenGL applications via a direct-rendering X Server and support the TNT, TNT2, GeForce 256, GeForce2 GTS, GeForce2 MX, GeForce2 Pro, GeForce2 GTS, GeForce 2 Ultra, GeForce2 Go, GeForce3, Quadro, Quadro2 MXR, and Quadro2 Pro chipsets. AGP and flat panel displays are also supported.

And there were even drivers before the v1.0 release, if I recall correctly. So there's no way that the GTS and 256 pre-date nVidia's linux support by a long way. Nice try. Care to pass off another lie?
