Is NVDI free? You could simple add NVDI.PRG to you Application .zip (distribution)

No, its not free, that's why it might be a bad idea to add it to the archive.

Beware that this covers all the basic Atari screen modes, but will not work on e.g. graphics cards of PC offspring that use linear framebuffer palette modes (like 256 colour VGA) and other "exotic" hardware (linear framebuffer palette modes should be trivial to implement, however).
