Hi. I'm new in Linux, and I would like to know if it's worth changing from Redhat to Debian.
I got 3 Redhat 9 CDs. I installed them. No problems. But yesterday I got 7 Debian CDs. I think it's 3.0... So I tried to install it. Of course I got problems.
First, a question. Why Redhat uses a EXT3 filesystem, and Debian uses a EXT2 filesystem??? What??? RedHat is better??? or my Debian version is too old???
Anyway, when I installed, I couldn't start the X server because of this error: "no screens found" and then it dropped me to the VGA console. Well I thought: The graphics card??? I have an NVidia GeForce2 MX400. I downloaded the latest linux drivers from NVidia.com. But I have them on the second computer.
The question is, how to transfer the driver from my Windows computer to my Debian, if I can't even start the X Server??? I mean, in that VGA shell.
Please try to answer both questions if possible.
Thanks in advance! GREAT
