Please let me rephrase because you obviously didn't get the point: It
is _not_ necessary to eploy a NVidia card to "be up and running in 20
minutes without hassle". This also works with stock XFree86 et least as
shipped with SuSE-9.0. I ran the whole stuff without modifying X11 as
well and it works fine for me (including DList-improvement).
Maybe you should better have a look who claims that much memory on your
system that makes it "swaps like mad even with 512M".

You don't need to compile X11 yourself. SuSE never shipped the broken
XFree86-4.3 stuff,

 Unix _IS_ user friendly - it's just selective about who its friends are !
