I have found both how to disable rhgb (http://www.fedorafaq.org/fc3/,
question 4): how would I adjust xorg.conf to use the sw pointer?

Besides that, is there any advantage in one solution over the other?

you mean that it is recognized and usable without passing special
parameters and/or having extra drivers ready on a floppy, right?

Just to be 100% sure: you mean that the procedure at
http://www.fedorafaq.org/fc3/#nvidia is still all you need to do right
after installing FC6 x86_64 from the DVDs, right? Without first
upgrading the kernel or doing anything else?

Sorry for being so picky and paranoid, but I really want to have
everything set straight before I do the install, and make it succeed
the first time (otherwise, for personal and work reasons, I may have
no time to re-do it again for weeks :-( )

The ethernet driver is what "worries" me the most, since if that
doesn't work immediately I wouldn't be able to download anything else.

Thanks again,
