No luck. Running NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7167-pkg1.run without flags results in
not being able to find the kernel source, so I added the --kernel-source-path
parameter, and watched the system lock up when the compile was 100% complete.
I also did a chmod 700 on the file which made no difference. When I checked
