Re: Fedora Core 2 drivers (possibly a solution)
If your computer won't start:
Download knoppix and boot into that! =)
Than you can edit your /mnt/hda1/etc/X11/xorg.conf file while logged in as root. You may have to replace hda1 with the hard drive and partition your /etc directory is in. (Example hdb1, or hda3)
The "nv" driver should work... I think.
To log in as root in Knoppix type:
Otherwise, if you can still get to a command promt, just log in as root, go to the /etc/X11/ directory, and edit your config file to use the stock "nv" driver or whatever stock driver you should be using for your video card.
I have a geforce card, so I'm not entirely sure how compatable the nv drivers are with the nforce cards. If it still doesn't boot into X, you may have to do a bit of searching to figure out what stock driver you should be using. =)
If worse comes to worse, there's standard VGA and VESA drivers you can try. =O
This is what my device section looks like from my xorg.conf file.
BoardName "NVidia's GeForce 4"
You can obviously change VendorName and BoardName to whatever you wish. =)
That'll get you into X, anyways.
