That command gives me the output :

BTW I got X to run fine by picking another NVidia card during the install. But since I want to LEARN Linux, I want to try this
2.4.18-14 is the orginal kernel version of RedHat 8.0 CD.
you can found driver at nvidia official site :
http://www.nvidia.com/view.asp?IO=l...y_ia32_1.0-4191

Because the kernel source package included all the driver. Once kernel rebuild, all driver need rebuild.

A bug was found and fixed, new version has rebuild (released),
driver is needed a new rebuild.
The RH 8.0 kernel is build with module.
kernel and driver module can rebuild separately.

I learn rebuild kernel from these site. :
http://www.linuxfocus.org/English/Ju...ticle209.shtml
http://en.tldp.org/HOWTO/Kernel-HOWTO-2.html

May be the driver not support you VGA card?
What card you tried failed.
In fact I have not idea of different model of VGA card. I think you can check VGA card isn't support on offical site.

Hope it answer you question.
