    Yes your right. I am going to reload my ubuntu and see if the first 
cut is a flook. I loaded it and it gave me the crooked image on my 
screen. Then the screen went blank for about 30 minutes it seemed like 
but really about 4 minutes. Then up came a real looking almost perfect 
image just like it looked after installing. I seems to know about Nvidia 
and does the right thing.

    If the thing is real then the ubuntu loader is smarter than 
anaconda. And it is still just one CD-rom :-)
