Default Re: Help Needed!

best is get a live linux CD

Knoppix or so: almost every linux magazine has a cd or dvd

Boott from cd / dvd

mont your root partition : it has the directory /etc

go to that directory
edit the file inittab

look for the default startup mode
change that from 5 to 3

Now your machine will boot in non graphical mode

Install the drivers
install them
test via start x
if all is Ok
ediot the inittab file and set default mode to 5

This will give you some peace between X window crashes ..

when one changes a video card always edit this file to mode 3
so one has time to install the driver
