Debian Graphics Problem & Dull Booting with SUSE
I have a AMD Athlon 64 and am trying to install Debian 3.1r0a (Sarge) alongside SUSE 9.2. SUSE is already installed. There are 2 60 GByte IDE hard drives. Both are on one channel (/dev/hda and /dev/hdb). The graphics card is a GeForce MX4000 AGP 8x with 64 MBytes of memory. The monitor is a 17" Dell 1703FP LCD. I am having the following problems.
1) When I do the install I get to a screen which asks me for a driver for the xserver. There are many options. I have tried a vga, vesa (default), and nv. The vga option didn't work. The other 2 won't allow a resolution better than 800x600. The optimum monitor resolution is 1280x1024 although it does support even better resolutions. What should I choose for the xserver driver?
2) The Debian installation does detect the SUSE OS. However, after installing Debian, the SUSE OS is broken. I can select it and start it, but it doesn't work properly. I don't get a graphics screen. The "startx" command also won't put me in the graphics mode. I have booted with the SUSE disk and "repaired" the installation. This allows me access to SUSE but not Debian. How do I get SUSE and Debian working together. Would overwriting the SUSE installation with Debian and then installing SUSE work?
