Default Dell D800 with Redhat 8 under VMware

Hi.. I have a Dell D800 with a GeForce 4200 Go card 64MB.
The screen has resolution 1280x800@60Hz WXGA

Iīm running VMware workstation 4.0.2 and a Redhat Linux 8.0 under this.
Using kernel 2.4.18-14 and have checked all the earlier theads about checking versions.

Trying to run Nvidias driver package:
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run

When running it,, it tells me that nvidia.o couldnīt be loaded.

What should i do ?

Regards Major_C

explanation:

do a lspci in that "vmware redhat" and
look what graphics device is reported.

Default lspci

Hi,, thanks for that ))

It reports unknown device 0405...

Is it possible to fix this "without installing linux direct on Hardware" ??

Need winXP, but wnat to use Linux as well, and sure it works using 1024x768,, but on a 15" widescreen itīs no good resolution...
