suse 10, xfine and other problems

Am I the only one having problems with XFine?

When I run xfine to get the monitor settings right, nothing happens when I press the buttons with my mouse. I thought that it would work just like the settings on a monitor. Will nvidia-drivers have some kind of tool that does this? I'm going to get the drivers as soon as I get the computer online. (it's brand new)

BTW, Why is suse 10.0 the only linux distro I have had problems with monitor settings? (Other versions are/were suse 9.2 and 9.3). The image in suse 10.0 is too far in the upper left corner.

I have issues with my secondary computer as well.
The other day my suse 9.3 somehow screwed up when I told it to restart to windows and I guess the bootloader was corrupted or something. I installed suse 10 on the same computer so now there is suse 9.3, suse 10.0 and win xp.
Every now and then when I try to boot the computer it starts to beep like hell and nothing happens. If I use the kill switch in the PSU it will boot properly. Do you have any advice for me?

Maybe it's just me but I've always found SuSE a bit squirrely with regard to video settings. That's one of many reasons I don't use SuSE, but that's just my personal experience. Some folks swear by it.
