Thanks everyone for all the responses.
To answer your question John:
One one machine we have a GeForce FX 5900 Ultra that displayed the
difficulty until we put the most recent Nvidia for Xorg driver on it. I
have not used the workstation very much since we installed the driver but it
appears to be ok now.
The others are nodes that I don't need much out of other than mplay.
It has an ATI mach 64 GR card and the driver is mesa project 1.2. It worked
for a couple seconds after the driver was installed, then stopped working.
Now it behaves just like it did before.
