I could not install Lucid because of a bug with no workaround so I could not test driver installation.

Nvidia GUI config tool disappears from System -> Administration after restarting when hardware driver is installed.
Jockeys says the driver is not in use, but it is.

Used the ISO from 3/12/2010, and everything worked perfectly

Hardware test; 1.5GHz P4; 1GB RAM; NVidia 6200 w/256MB memory

As of 2010-03-10 desktop image
System -> Administration -> Hardware Drivers does not identify any hardware drivers for this system until after running "sudo apt-get update" and "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade".

Nvidia GUI config tool disappears from System -> Administration after restarting when hardware driver is installed. This should be considered a serious bug since NVidia card users can not perform most of the configuration options without the config tool.

Since the previous test failed, did an apt-get remove nvidia-current, reboot. JOcket allows me to install the new driver, but another rebot needed.

Proprietary driver activated, but jockey GUI shows it as "not currently being used".
