Oops...meant to include the info...
14" (honestly, it could be a 15", but sitting next to my 17" it's just
small! 8-) )
Sceptre, Model: E447AU
I checked the sceptre site, but didn't see any info about thier older
I'm running RedHat 7.2
64MB RAM (soon to be 192)
Voodoo 3 2000 w/16MB RAM
Basically, whenver I run Xconfigurator, probe gets my video card (PCI Entry:
probe gets ATI|3D Rage Pro AGP 1X/2X, X Server: XF86_Mach64, XFree4 driver:
ati, which doesn't sound right to me!), and I have to choose a monitor...I
video mem, No Clockchip Setting, and I choose the 640x480 8-bit
mode...Xconfig says it will test, and always comes up with an error, saying
I can go back or quit...
Hopefully that's not TOO much info!
