Unhappy I Need Help Please


I installed Red Hat Linux 7.3 just a while ago under VMware Workstation 3.1 and I've been having A LOT of problems. I really need some help, please?

Here's my situtation:

1) X wont start. It gives me the 'fatal error' and the 'no screens found' crap.

2) I tried to do what you guys suggested on previous posts, but i have a MAJOR problem. Thats were #3 comes in...

3) I burned the files (the tar and rpm ones just in case) from the nvidia site onto a cd because i have a gforce 2 mx card. But linux couldnt read it!!!!! i cd-ed to /mnt/cdrom and nothing showed up with ls.

4) So it i tried to place them on floppy disks, BUT ,my floppy drive is dead -it reads nothing but my Linux boot floppy.

and

5) i cant get virtual linux box to share my host's broadband connection, so there goes my last chance of installing those new drivers. It gives me this '\\.\VMnet0: The system cannot find the file specified. Failed to configure ethernet0.' message.

So please, I seriously need some help...

AS for 1 through 4 did you try to mount cd/floppy first with mount command? It helps
5. Unfortunately, I have no idea what it is. I have no VMWare whatsoever.

VMware is this vitual pc thing. It lets you co-run (not dual boot) 2 or more os's at the same time. I already tried to mount the floppy, no luck at all.

I know what VMWare is I had it running like 2 years ago, I am still getting e-mails from them. As for mounting: how do you mount, are you sure you mount correct drives? Also to ensure everything is ok, run as root
/sbin/depmod -ae
