Default NVidia Geforce4 MX4000 PCI DDR 64MB Graphics Card Problem

Hello. I am nearly completly new to linux. I run SuSE 9.1 and i would like to install my video card into it. However i ran into some problems.

1)Can not find Kernel - I did solve this however by installing the newest kernal from kernal.org into my usr/src/linux file.

2)Please Configure Sax2 to activate your card. I can not figure this part out. It has me totally lost! any ideas?

3) i would say this would have to be the worst one. Whenever i put in my Video card, it seems to cause trouble between both the intergrated and the PCI card, and the moniter blacks out right when the log in screen occurs.

I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could help me with my problems.

SuSE 9.1 contains the nv drivers (2d), and you can download the nvidia drivers as an update through Yast.

With that being said, if you're still getting prompted to use Sax, its as easy as going through Yast and setting up the display with the appropriate driver under the hardware section. Its that simple. If you have the appropriate nvidia driver installed, there will be a dialogue to turn on 3d accelleration. Check the box, and restart the xserver (usually all you need to do is log out and log back in).
