This is a test of a more updated nVidia HIDD for AROS.  It adds some of the new
stuff added to the NV X.Org driver since the original driver was written.

This driver has fixed the problem I had with my card working on the analog mode
(frequency out of range.)  It hasn't fixed the existing bug the old driver also
had with crashing on some high res modes in non-24 bit.

I have tested on my 6800 on all modes my monitor can handle upto 1680x1050 on
both the analog (VGA) and DVI ports.

If you'd like to try it, simply replace the nvidia.hidd in your devs/drivers
directory with this one.  For the sake of sanity, make sure you have a copy of
the old one first.

I won't take any responsibility if it makes your computer blow up, or your cat
joins the circus or whatever.  It shouldn't do any bad stuff, but use it at your
own risk.

If the test goes well, I'll push the changes through to the regular AROS builds.
