Now that I understand!
However I did run into something very weird in my attempts to fix this problem. I did not have a .config file for my 2.4.20-4GB-athlon KERNAL. Does that make any sense to anyone? Does this mean that the KERNAL was copied to my machine via YaST's update, but never compiled under my machine? I figure that this information is not really relevant to NVIDIA Graphics in Linux but found it odd. However this is the only Linux forum that I have had luck with.
Thanks again for the help, this is making my move to Linux much easier!
