I have been trying to get Natty running on my desktop pc with a Nvidia 8400GS card but not having much luck. I can see on the forums that it is related to the X server version and the nvidia driver. Will i be able to install 11.04 with Unity desktop using my Nvidia card?

As Jorge and Alaukik have both said, this is speculative about something that is far from finished and is a bug. Track this on Launchpad. – Oli Feb 21 '11 at 17:41

Natty is in alpha state and recently an xserver update changed its abi so the current nvdia drivers don't work and there is an bug in the floss drivers.

But i am quite sure that the drivers will be updated and even the floss driver's bug will be fixed so you will be able to use 11.04 on 28 April.
