XServer won't start


I've just made my system dual boot for the first time (Windows XP/Red Hat 7.2) but I am having problems with my xserver, it cannot start.

I assume this is a problem with my graphics card - GeForce4 MX 440, it was not in the list provided when choosing my card but I was advised to select the generic GeForce2 card.

Below is the full error log I get when running:
$ startx &> out
$ more out

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks
Keith

You need the video drivers for your card. You should be able to get it running at some setting using the generic driver.

As root, command:

setup

Reconfigure (and test) X with that until you can install the drivers.
