Hi

I've found that where RedHat 8 would detect and use most video cards, RedHat 9 Failed...

ie:
I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro SP6100
512Mb Ram
Nvidia video card (Nvidia2go)
Intel NIC
Tosh Wireless
Bluetooth
etc etc etc

RedHat 8 loved it, worked no problem.. Redhat 9, bah no.. Didn't like the display. Used Nvidias Linux drivers, failed.. Tried rebuilding X manually.. Failed...
I gave up...

Try something like SuSE 9 or Xandros 2.. I found both to pretty much support most drivers and work without a problem.. There is one issue with using Xandros on a Laptop with NVidia graphics.. And its a case of adding an option to /etc/X11/Xf86config-4

Hope my words of uselessness turn into wisdom smile.gif
