Thinking about switching back to Windows if I can't get this to work!!!
I have Mandrake 8.1 (which I've reinstalled probably over 10 times by now) and a GeForce 2 MX 400. After installing Linux, I install the drivers for my video card. But then when I start up X, the screen blinks about twice and then goes blank, and the hard disk drive becomes inactive. Even if I let it sit for 2.5 minutes it doesn't do anything else. I've spent countless hours trying to get 3D support on this thing. What the hay is wrong?! If I don't get 3D support soon I might just forget about Linux completely and switch back to Windows, because I can install Windows and get 3D support in less than one hour.
