[mythtv-users] Mythbuntu 8.04 "Low Graphics Mode" with nvidia 8600

I tried to upgrade my 7.10 Mythbuntu to 8.04 last week. Since then I've
been around and around in circles over this problem. My googling hasn't
turned up any definitive answers. 

Using an nvidia 8600 card mythbuntu starts up in "Low Graphics Mode".
This card worked fine under the previous 7.10 version. In frustration I
tried installing etch, and had the same problems. It seems the card
simply isn't recognized.

Has anyone had this problem? I'm willing to post whatever message output
might be helpful, if there is anyone here who is willing to help.
Surely, someone on this list must be running a similar setup.
