Description of problem:
When trying to use the nouveau driver I get a couple of accented above a

flashing until the system POSTs again.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. type startx at login

3. press ctl-alt-delete to reboot system
Flashing aac with no screen output
A working driver and a hint of 3D capabilities.
