Well 173.08 has been working fine on one of my machines, so I imagine
this one should not cause any issues either.

It also doesn't need a patch to compile with 2.6.25 kernels, so all we
need is the xen patch (unless nvidia magically decided to fix that
themselves too).

I still need to check if that 'Fixed a problem that caused TV output on
secondary TVs to be black and white on some GPUs.' part is why my 8600GT
only shows colour with composite output, not with svideo or component.
I would like to go back to a better cable type like my 5200 used to use.
That would be quite a bonus.
