nVidia download fixed

Sage reported that the nVidia driver upgrade was broken in Wary 5.1.3.4. Yes, I found out why. Although I don't have an nVidia card, I can temporarily fool the script into thinking there is one, which is what I should have done before, to verify that the script works.

I have fixed scripts /usr/local/video_upgrade/video_upgrade_wizard and /usr/local/video_upgrade/which_nvidia_pkg.

How to get nVidia support
@Barry or @Sage,
Could a post of directions to get nVidia driver support on LiveCD be shared in the forum?
Should we start with VESA then follows some steps after desktop?

Thanks

nVidia support
When the "Welcome 1st boot" window appears, it says to click on the 'setup' icon to do various things, such as upgrade X drivers.

If you click on the 'setup' icon, there is a choice labeled 'Upgrade X drivers...".

Doesn't need any instructions, new users should discover it right off.

It is fixed for the 5.1.4 final.
