Ok, I'm running KDE.. and.. what else you said made very little sense outside the context of a specific program.. is that called "fiynn"? I sure can't see anything like that.. so I'm confused.. nor do I see anything called xinerama but when I search for it I don't see anything that gives a link to download it.. typing xinerama download in google doesn't appear to get me to the right thing either. Note, I didn't go to every link but I did try to go to several and nothing turned up that was of much help.
I'm a windows user.. not a linux one so try not to assume anything if you possibly can.. so tell me every program name, etc. I think you were referencing the kde menu with fedora and from what I've seen from looking at other distributions sadly things are never even necessarily close to the same organization.. *sigh*.. a real pain for anyone new.
Oh, and thanks again.
EDIT: scratch the above, realized how much of a noob I was.. going to try a few things real fast.. XF86Config-4 is a file I have similar to what you were talking about.. going to try to put what you had there in it...
EDIT2: I have a pressing problem now.. I've been trying to fix this, but it appears now mandrake is incredibly unstable. Now the only thing I do know is that it's not hardware related because windows xp is giving me absolutely no problems and I haven't even had one oddity appear. Very frustrating.. nice thing is that it seems a few videos I had in divx avi worked in the base install without me having to do anything special.. that's nice.
Anyway, what I mean by unstable is that it stalls the computer completely. For a few seconds I can turn on and off num/caps lock but eventually even that locks solid.. not sure what the problem has to do with.
