Thank you for giving me advice on how to
install a dual-boot (Win2000/RH8_linux)
PC system. I have installed them successfully
Then I realize the following problems, and
wonder if you can give me some advice.
1) During post installation video/monitor
setup, I can't find my monitor and graphics
card models... so I picked the closest ones...
Now (after installation), can I modify my
vidoe setup (i.e. video ram size, graphics
card chipset)??? How can I do this?
2) My on board (motherboard) sound chipset
is not recognized by GNOME and KDE, how
can I fix this? I believe it's an AC97 CODEC...
Is there a way to find out exactly what it is,
and fix it? It complains about "/dev/dsp" not
3) I have installed both GNOME and KDE, will
this cause me any problem? Should I keep
one and delay the other? If so, how can I
4) After o/s installation, I realize my linux o/s
can be boot up with decent speed; but when
I boot my PC with my Win2000, it's about 20x
(20 times) slower than before (i.e. when only
Win2000 was in my PC, not linux RH8); what's
the cause for this? Can any of you give me
some advice on how to fix this speed issue?
(It's like taking FOREVER to wait for Win2000
to boot and/or shut down my PC).
Finally, for those who are interested in installing
RH 8.0 or 9.0; but seeking for info... you can go
to the official red hat web site... they have very
good reference materials on how to install both
versions. I believe they also have RH9 for people
Thank you once again for your advice and help,
I look forward to more helpful advice from you.
