cannot get graphics login in Mandrake after install
Hi guys, I am a total newbie when it come to linux but I really want to learn. I got Mandrake 9.2 and went to duel boot it with Win xp. I partitioned the hard drive and installed fine. When the computer rebooted, I was at a black screen with a text login. That was fine, went to login and then typed "startx" to start the graphics, but it just came up with some error about not seeing my Vid card. Anyway, not sure of the best way to get around that, I reinstalled and played around on the config page with the vid and monitor settings. No matter what I tried, I could not get it to test. At first it was saying there was some unknown error, then it could not determine the screen size or something. Anyway, I'm sure you wonderful people will be able to tell me what little dumb thing I am doing wrong.
I'm running an AMD 2000xp, 512mb or ram, WD 80gb drive, Sapphire 9600 pro with a Viewsonic P75f+ monitor.
