Ok I got everything to start up. It was and is a video card issue for sure. I'm running a radeon 9800 pro. Anyhow when I try to install the radeon 3.2.8 drivers I get this damn error.

"Installation failed:
file /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2 from install of fglrx-glc22-4.3.0-3.2.8 conflicts with file from package libxfree86-4.3-23mdk"

I really don't know what to do. I'm completely lost.

Edit:

Besides that the default drivers that come wtih mandrake will only work at 640 by 480. If I try any other rez it won't load.

Mmm, maybe you downloaded the wrong driver. Otherwise it shouldn't have a conflict. Or perhaps you are missing some required packages, check the README file, if one is available.

Well I have a 9800 pro and I downloaded the radeon driver for the 9800 series. As for missing required packages, I wouldn't really know where to start when it comes to figuring out if I'm missing something.
