Well I changed the driver to via in a terminal window in kde, and rebooted. It seems to be working. How do I confirm it's using the via driver and not the vesa one?

Still working on sound.

thanks again for all the help

Jason

udev requires kernal ...>7.2.6.12 notstarted
udev actually makes devices configurable in user space (rather than kernel space), so
it might be worth having it working.

It requires a 2.6 kernel though. So, unless you're planning to upgrade your kernel from
2.4.27-2-386 to the latest stable 2.6 version, you should eliminate udev.

I also read something about not mixing OSS with Alsa. So, if you see any modules for OSS in /etc/modules,
maybe you need to reconfigure the loaded modules.
