Hi all - don't laugh **TOO** hard.  

chipset) with a big-screen TV plugged in to the S-VHS output port (the
machine was originally set up in my family room downstairs as a Win-95 game
machine, also occasionally used for browsing the Web from the comfort of
the couch).  Well, I found an extra SCSI 1G hard drive in the closet last
week, so I put it in the old beast and installed RedHat Linux 5.2 on it - I
also have 5.2 on my main machine and figured I'd network them as an
exercise in Linux networking.  In any case, I can't seem to get X to work
with the TV set.  Win95 works fine with it (runs at 800x600 resolution,
24-bit color).  Anyone else out there ever tried this, and if so, how do I
best set up XF86Config?  I used some conservative settings with
Xconfigurator, but it didn't work - white bands running across the screen
until I hit Ctrl-Alt-F1 to shut down the X server.

You've gotta diconnect the TV out cable from the card for X to work. That's
what I did, it now works perfectly.

What I would really like to know is this : is there a difference between

cards that are agp and work with RH 5.2 (out of the box) would be really
