Sorry.  I should have mentioned that I'm using a GeForce FX 5200 card.
 Because of it's "age", NVIDIA says that it need the the
"nvidia-driver-173...", but NVIDIA also says they do not have a
version that works for FreeBSD 8.x.  I was hoping someone in the
FreeBSD community might have ported it.  Unfortunately, I'm no video
card hacker.
