Sub_title: For GeForce FX 5200 and many other older cards

I have made this .pet which I believe has everything all present and correct. I have tested it here on my FX 5200 nvidia card and it all works fine for me including the uninstall which restores the vesa driver with nv also available via xorg wizard.

Please do tell me though if the pinstall and puninstall scripts need to be amended or could be improved.

Both are just taken from 01micko's Slacko nvidia driver pet so they may need to be slightly different for Racy, not sure. The pinstall script is unchanged.

In the puninstall script I have corrected the very old typo in the pink dialog from "rmmod mvidia" to "rmmod nvidia" but the rest looks like it is supposed to reload the nv driver and I am not sure if the paths need changing (to /usr/lib/x/drivers-alternate as I have done).

Anyway, as I say it does work for me and with all the problems with the nouveau driver I think it is good to have a .pet of a suitable nvidia driver available.
