Botched nvidia driver leads to hellp needed
OK- I gave up on windows, but am completely lost as far as linux goes. I tried red hat 9 long ago, and didn't have time to learn all I needed to know to use my PC in ways I use it. So I install Fedora core 3 today, and first step is to make my screen resolution the right size. I go to nvidia, get the driver, and begin to follow the instructions here to install it. Firsts I went to /etc/X11/xorg config, made the changes. Well, after about 2 minutes of waiting to get a usable command line after exiting X windows (init 3), I decided nothing was working, so I had to do a hard shutdown(mistake, I know). On restart now, it hangs at "configuring kernel parameteres"(5 miuntes). So, now I''m back in windows so I can get here and hopefully get help. As you can see, first I need to figure out how to get back into fedora, then, once I do, where did I go wrong on exiting x-windows.???
