Thanks, I kinda figured it out last night.  Unfortunately the 256 drivers 
have a larger problem than the "remnants" of the 260 drivers, for my systems 
anyways.  When I kill my frontend in the middle of video with the 256 
drivers, my whole system just hardlocked.  I've reverted back to 195 and 
we'll see what future drivers bring.  Also, I agree with you, the 
nvidia-glx-XXX naming scheme is much easier to work with.
