Thanx for all the tips guys. I've been meaning to getting into Linux for a good while now, but never seemed to get around to it. Finally installed Mandrake 10.0 Community, and had an issue with installing the nVidia driver. (Basically the same type of stuff that was posted here.) Anyhow, by following the posted advice and links here, I got it working with absolutely no trouble at all. It's been a VERY long time since I've worked out of a command line, even longer since I've done any work with anything other than DOS/Windows. (Used to run Bayan VINES networks in the military... very little Unix needed for what we did, so I didn't get to learn as much as I'd like.)
Anyhow, thanx again... I'm off to the library to get some books on Linux, and enjoy learning something new again!
I love it when my first post in a forum community is a "thank you", rather than a "help me"!
