GeForce 2 MX 400 and Mandrake 8.2
I installed Mandrake 8.2 on a Desktop PC with GeForce 2 MX 400.
But I can't access the graphical user interface.
What files should be downloaded from Nvidia's web site to fix this problem?

There should be a shell script you can download from the site.
If your GUI's down you might need to surf text prompt stylee!
Internet connection should be in the /usr/sbin/net_monitor.real somewhere, if you've set it up before you tried changing your video card. You might have to set up the internet connection raw i.e. all the internet connection how-tos for your modem or whatever.
Then use Links (or another one like it). It's a text based web-browser!
Ok, connect to internet, download shell script.
While still connected, run shell script.
It pretty much does it all for you.
Then read the README (/usr/share/doc/NVIDIA*/README).
Backup and then change your XF86Config-4 (in /etc/X11).

As I said before, I'm still in problems myself!!!
