Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

First off, I swear I've read every thing about nVidia driver issues and none of the solutions have solved my problem. Please help!
Ok, the system is a AMD Athlon64 3000+ with a nVidia GeForce FX 5200 video card running SuSE 9.1. Glxgears is reporting only about 140fps at 1280x1024 16-bit color and that's when I downgraded the drivers to 5332 from 6111 (only 99 fps with 6111).
I've tried the YOU install of the driver. No go. I've downloaded the drivers from nVidia myself and built them. No go. I have no clue as to what to check\do now.
I do see the nVidia logo when X comes up and everything points to the driver being loaded and working. And I know it's not just glxgears giving bad numbers because I'm running other GL apps and they're slow too.
Yes do it, if memory serves it took something like 2 days for them to reply to mine.
Are you using hotmail? Since ive experienced alot of problems with hotmail, try another email
"provider" ([shameless plugg] Yahoo is great [/shameless plugg]).
Does it work with another OS? Maybe you have to reinstall your system?
Actually, now that I've gotten into actually computer a bit more, I've realized it's a Jaton card, but it still has the GeForce4 5200FX chipset. So, I just shot out an email to them about it.
I don't think the system needs to rebuilt since it's a brand new system (less then a month old) and the video card is the orginal. I have swapped in a GeForce3 card to test against this one and I now have 358 fps. Not sure why a slower card is giving better results, but it's a fix for the time being.
And I'd rather not mess with the PAM stuff, cause, well, I don't know it that well and it scares me. But, seeing this older card work better makes me think that won't fix it.
I apreciate all the help you've been giving, but I swear that the computer gods is just plain old anger with me.
