Thanks all for the replies.  I see now that nvidia is being used by xorg 
but apparently not at bootup.  This would explain why I see the splash 
screen later in the process than I previously did.

The answer is obvious now that you all explain it so I am sorry if I 
wasted anyones time.  The best answers are often that way though.

I can now go forward and finish my system.

Thanks again,
