6.0 Linux and 3-D Graphics (Nvidia)

I learned the hard way that it is a good idea to make sure your 3-D support
is set up when using Mathematica with Linux.  Specifically, I had neglected
to install the Nvidia drivers the last time I upgraded openSUSE. 
Mathematica was killing X when I used the 3-D mouse-drag support.  Koji
Ouchi from WRI suggested I look at my 3-D setup, and that led me to realize
that I needed to install the Nvidia drivers.  The graphics support is much
better, and X seems a lot happier as well.
