[mythtv-users] Problem w/ nVidia drivers 177.80???

OK, I had problems with my on-board ATI Radeon X1200 video and drivers,
so I put an nVidia Geforce 7300 (I think that's what is is) in. After
finally getting the latest drivers installed, the frontend seemed to
take a long time coming up. It just hangs out on the "Pre-scaling theme
images" window for a long time. I let it go about 20 minutes earlier
and it never left there.
So, since my box is still a "work in progress" and I don't have anything
on it that can't be replaced, I figured I'd nuke it and reinstall
Mythbuntu 8.10. I figured that maybe some weird conflict between the
ATI drivers and the nVidia drivers might be going on. Well, no luck. I
reinstalled it and its doing the same thing. Its been on the
"Pre-scaling theme images" window for about 30 minutes now as I type this.
When I set it up from the CD, I told it to use the 177.80 drivers. I
couldn't find anything about there being any problems with this set of
drivers. There was an option to use the 173 series. Should I try going
into the "Restricted Hardware Drivers" GUI and loading those?
Thanks for any help!
