UPDATE:  I just installed an nVidia GeForce 9400GT in my box, and I went 
into the BIOS and told it to use PCIx for the display adapter instead of 
the On-board VGA, but I still get the video out through my onboard 
video, which is the ATI Radeon X1200.  I have plugged in a 17" monitor 
to verify this.  How can I fix this?

Also, after I get the video out via my new card, do I have to do 
anything special to get the nVidia drivers going?  apt-get, or direct
