Okay, I did a complete install now.

When it try to run it, i get this:

[root@Ameng downloads]# rpm -ivh kernel-source-2.4.20-20.9.i386.rpm
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
package kernel-source-2.4.20-20.9 is already installed

So, I guess I didnt need that.

Does this mean I just have to go into my XF86Config and change the video from nv to nvidia?

Ming you, i still havent installed the video drivers, I have just done a complete install and updated everything thru RHN.

Please help
