Greetings! I'm cross-posting this to three newsgroups. I hope I'm not
breaking any rules of netiquette.
I just tried installing RedHat 5.0 this evening. The install was amazingly
straightforward, with just a handful of exceptions.
First, the screen which prompts me for my monitor's vertical refresh rates
allows me to choose from several standard ranges (beginning with 50-70Khz)
or enter my own custom settings. But I can't figure out how to enter custom
settings on this page.
Secondly, how do I convince Linux and System Commander to co-exist? I'd like
to be able to boot Linux from System Commander's menu, but all Linux does is
install its own MBR, which wipes out SC. When I then run SC, it
re-establishes its own MBR, which in turns destroys Linux. SC's help says
something about Linux not writing a boot sector, and needing to set up SC to
"boot through" Linux's MBR, but it doesn't explain how.
Yes, I know Linux comes with a perfectly good boot loader, but I like SC.
Finally, does anyone know whether there is any support for the Brook Tree
Video video chipset? I may be able to get my hands on a decent graphics
card, but it uses BTV, and I'd like to know whether Linux will work with it.
