Hi! When I'm trying to start the minecraft game application I get:

Bad video card drivers!
Minecraft was unable to start because it failed to find an accelerated OpenGL mode.
This can usually be fixed by updating the video card drivers.

Minecraft is still in "Alpha" - so it's gonna be unstable.
I'd suggest checking the Development Status and Community links on this page: http://www.minecraft.net/
