Yes, A. Sinan YAVUZ should Search The Fine Web.  Also, he should know
that trying to use an nVidia Geforce 3 graphics card with something as
old as Redhat 6.2 won't work very well.  The Geforce 3 is supported by
the evil binary-only nVidia modules, or the Free "nv" module, but you
need XFree86 4.x to get either one of those to work, and Redhat 6.2
shipped with XFree86 3.3.6.

From nVidia's website.

?? That's a monitor, right?  Why would a monitor need a driver?
 
 
 

1. GeForce 2 MX on RedHat 6.2

        I think my original post got trashed, so here's another go at it...

        The drivers for the Geforce 2 MX video card came out after Red Hat 6.2
(as did the card itself, I think!)  So you need to download drivers from
http://www.nvidia.com/Products/Drivers.nsf/Linux.html .

        HOWEVER... those drivers only work on newer versions of XFree, the
4.0.x versions.  According to nVidia's FAQ, probably only 4.0.1 (the newest)
works.  So you'll need to upgrade that as well.  You may be able to download
the necessary components from the newly released RedHat 7.0.  Alternately, buy
a cheap version of RedHat 7.0 (without manuals, etc.) and just upgrade.  In the
worst scenario you can compile the XFree source yourself (hint: DONT!), but
it's better to either download the XFree 4.0.1 RPMs from RedHat 7.0, or buy the
Cheapbytes version of RedHat 7.0 (www.cheapbytes.com) for like $5 or something,
and just upgrade.
