	The nv module works fine. The only issue is that X will not autoconfigure to 
use it, so you must create a minimal xorg.conf telling X to use the nv driver. 
Then it works like a champ. Thankfully, the only thing required was to:

cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.nvida

edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf and change Driver  "nvidia" to Driver  "nv" and remove 
any nvidia specific options like "option   coolbits = 1". The restarting kdm did 
the trick.
