AND>>> i tried to install xmss and it froze.. so i rebooted my pc and redhat wont load.. it blinks on and off by local user login before it loads kde.
First the AND.
I does load KDE? I had a similar problem before, but it never got so far as actually getting to desktop. In my case it was due to that the root partition was filled up, and the font server needed some free space there to start properly. How much space do you have left?
You also need to get the mp3 plugin for XMMS. Red Hat doesn't come with it
You can find the plugin and the reason for Red Hat not including it here.
The linux install stuff is on the third CD. The linux installer is a bit confused about the numbering of the CD:s though. The file is either a .bin or a .sh, can't remember which at the moment. Tip: Fix your card driver first
Your card drivers:
Did you get them from ATI or did you just use those on the CD? If you got them from the CD, go over to ATI and get the latest linux drivers. Make sure you read the install instructions before installing. You will probably at least need to edit /etc/X11/XF86Config to actually load the new drivers. I don't actually have ATI myself, so I can't help you any further.
As for ntfs, while there are good instructions mounting ntfs as well as the module necessary on the link suplied by BlakeJr, you might find this helpful;
the line in /etc/fstab that allows me to easily mount the windows partition:
/dev/hda1 /mnt/washu ntfs noauto,owner,users,ro,umask=0222,iocharset=utf8 0 0
it mounts it to /mnt/washu.
mount it to whatever directory you want, but a dir in /mnt/ is recommended
Just make sure the dir exists
