I must say, I was very excited to try this out.  I updated
/etc/portage/package.keywords just as you said and was able to install
nvidia-kernel-1.0.7676-r1.

Unfortunately, I still get the same results.  No X server and "(EE)
NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module!" in my log
file.

I have seriously bad luck with nvidia.  Maybe I would be better off
with a new motherboard (my nvidia chip is integrated). :(

Any other ideas?
