given that i have a dell inspiron with nvidia geforce 2, that's not
what i wanted to hear, but i pretty much already knew that.  
rather than downgrading, what about upgrading to a newer rawhide
kernel?  i've also been playing with the 2.5.59 kernel, and 
been pretty happy so far.  did you try either of those?

also not what i wanted to hear, since i have crossover office and
wanted to start using vmware.  it seems that i'll have to pass on
this beta as well.  bummer.
