Remember, those options only matter if you're using the "nvidia" drivers.
This is what I was afraid of. I don't have Debian complete yet so I cannot compile the nvidia module. With this in mind, I just want to get it 'functioning' and once it is I will then go thrue and install what needs to be installed for the 'nvidia' module...

I had tried the 'vesa' module already without luck. Hell, I even tried to use framebuffers and still had no luck. And now I'm at a total loss as to what to try next.

It just doesn't make sense to me - why does the old RIVA TNT2 card work but not the FX5200 since they both use the same 'nv' module? Hmmm...

Thanks for your help.
