Default Redhat 9 with 1.0-4496

Hi,
There seems to be a problem in that I cannot download the README file. Could someone please tell me the steps to take with Redhat 9 after I've executed the command "sh NVidia...driver" step? The system is still using the VESA driver and I don't know how to get it to use the new NVidea driver.

Many thanks,
David

edit those sections of your /etc/X11/XF86config this way (look the arrows):

Section "Module"
Load "dbe"
Load "extmod"
Load "fbdevhw"
Load "glx" <-----
Load "record"
Load "freetype"
Load "type1"
#Load "dri" <-----
EndSection


Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia" <-----
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce FX (generic)"
EndSection
