Geforce fx 5200 question


This is probably a very strange question, but I thought I would ask it anyway;

I just got RedHat 9 and installed it on my 20GB slave drive with Windows 2000 running my master drive. Is there a way to install the new nvidia drivers to RedHat from Windows 2000?

If you mean "Can I use the windows driver in Linux "
The answer is... No.

If you want the latest Nvidia drivers for Linux,
go to the Nvidia website and download the newest one for Linux.

Not at all what I was asking really. The situation is that I've downloaded the most recent linux drivers for my fx 5200 card, but I was wondering if I could install them onto RedHat (which is on my linux drive) from Windows 2000.

Oh... ... Sorry, I completely misunderstood your post.

You can copy the driver from windows to Linux using Explore2fs.

However, in order to install it, you will have to be in Linux.

Thanks for the utility link. Now I just have to go through the fun of setting up a user and all that jazz in text mode.

and now we do the dance of joy.
