FWIW, _I_ figured out Nvidia drivers on Kubuntu, and have accel'd 3D working
for my purposes (lately, Xgl, Compiz and Beryl GUI eye candy... previously,
just to get things like Stellarium and Google Earth working... I'm not
a hardcore gamer, and, while I have Windows on a drive in that box, I no
longer touch it since work issued me a laptop).

So, it shouldn't be _too_ hard.

I'm not familiar with PCLinuxOS, having only ever used RedHat, Debian
and Kubuntu... nor will I be attending an Installfest any time soon.
But, I say: RSPV for the next one.  I think they're trying to work out
when it will be, probably later this month:
