just good to know, if you get this kind of errors (because you got a new
GFX-Board) when you use the nVidia (cosed source) driver ...
just do what your kernel says:
"use vmalloc=<size> to increase size"

I gave the kernel vmalloc=512M as parameter.

O.K. why the hell is this idiot telling us this?
Because the next time I got a dark screen after upgrading my gfx I want
the solution as the first hit with google :-)
