Quadro FX 570 driver installation on linux
I have just installed CentOS 3.9 linux on my workstation, which has a Quadro FX 570 video card.
However I cannot enter the operating system cuz the screen will always turn black when I am about to enter OS. Neither can I run the display driver.
What I suspect is that I select "desktop" when I was installing linux. Is that the real cause of the problem?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!

press Ctrl+Alt+F1 to switch to a virtual console. Or start your system in single user mode. Use google to figure out how to do this if you don't know.
login with root priveleges and start editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf in your favorite text editor. Make a backup first and copy the backup somewhere else so that it is not accidentally overwritten!
Find Section "Device"
Under that change Driver to "vesa"
Save file and press Ctrl+Alt+F7 to go to login screen. Wait for about 10 seconds and press Ctrl+Alt+BackSpace to restart X. You should now have a login screen. Expect the resolution to be terrible, but you can atleast login and get a gui desktop.
You still need to install nvidia's drivers.
I am using Ubuntu 7.10 on my laptop with FX 570M and it works well. I generally use the 'envy' tool
from http://www.albertomilone.com/nvidia_scripts1.html but as far as I know, it is available only for debian and ubuntu.
