i am about to get 2 of these cards and want to run SLI with them. is anyone doing that with sabayon 3.3, if so are you successful at getting SLI working, and any other issues you might know about for me to look out for when i upgrade.

I am currently using 2x Nvidia 7600GS cards that i THINK are in sli mode, but i am not 100% sure as i do not see near the performance under linux as i do under windows with them in SLI mode.

I've got a Dell XPS 710 with dual Nvidia 8800GTX cards, cannot get the Live DVD to boot. DVD is from Issue 73 of Linux User and Developer magazine. Running VMWare Player and the vmx from same DVD will run Sabayon, without Graphics acceleration. I'm not much of a hacker, so I doubt I'll figure out how to make it work. But hopefully smarter folks have a similar set up and can show the way. Would love to have Sabayon as a choice on bootup.
