I don't know if I know what I do
. I need to use a hard disk where I
have other distros installed too.
Isn't it possible not to install GRUB? I won't install GRUB, but use the
existing one by another distro.
Btw. I won't test the 3.3 alpha, resp. I only will test the NVIDIA driver.

For 3.0-beta3 I also tried to build the current proprietary driver from
NVIDIA for a self-build kernel, but it failed, while it is ok for Suse.
