As the install didn't detect your card properly, it never got set up. I don't know the exactly how to set it up with the basic XFree86 drivers. However, I suggest you go over to nvidias homepage, and get the linux drivers from there. Also read the install instructions before
installing. You will need to manually make changes to XF86Config (/etc/X11/XF86Config), but that's all included in the install instructions.
the latest driver can currently be found here: http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._ia32_1.0-4496
Note: you can easily download the drivers directly to linux by doing:
Provided, of course, that you have the internet connection working.
Networking is disabled in single user mode, btw. You will want to be at runlevel 3.
As you managed to get to singel user mode, runlevel 1, I assume you can get to 3 as well without further instructions.
EDIT:However, you don't need to reboot to switch runlevels.
As root, you can change runlevels by doing:
to change to runlevel 3, for example.
EDIT: The NVIDIA FAQ thread on top in the newbies forum might also be helpful.
I should also mention that you need to have the kernel sources installed.
They are on one of the CD:s. If you used up2date to get the latest kernel, make sure you have updated the kernel sources as well, if you installed them after you updated the kernel.
