Mandrake 10.0 on Dell Inspiron 8000


I recently tried to install Mandrake 10.0 on my Dell Inspiron 8000. The problem is that Mandrake doesn't auto-recognise my display settings well. I have an Nvidia GeForce2 GO and it doesn't seem to have suport for it in this version of Mandrake.

As a result I can't startX. Is there an easy way to fix this (more specific: is this problem solutionable by just editing the config file ?).

PS/ I can't connect either so downloading the drivers is a bit of a problem atm ...

Fixed it

Very strange, reformatting my hdd and reinstalling Mandrake using wrong drivers (Nvidia Geforce2 DDR) fixed the problem....
