Shouldn't he uninstall the Debian packages for the drivers he has already 
installed before he installs them the way you suggest?

I don't know, but it seems like a good idea to me.  And what about the DRI 
problem, should DRI be commented out of the /etc/X11/XF86Config-4  (or 
xorg.conf if that applies) file?
