Absolutely!!
If you are using linux for a desktop comp,dump Redhat and put Mandrake instead.And feel the difference!!
Also,try getting redhat 9 atleast.
xf86config is just fine,i think.(only if you know what you are doing).

what concerns rh 9.0: i gave it a try, too. but whenever i want to install it, anaconda crashes down, even in text mode.

rh comes along with such problems and still seems to be the most-used distro, i donīt believe it! i would have loved using it, but with those bugs i just didnīt get it to run. with using standard parts only! and since iīm using slackware, i donīt miss rh any longer.

even after reconfiguring xf86 several times, rh in earlier versions (7.2 and 8.0) didnīt want to work with my notebooks.

seems that many more people have problems with that, quite interesting. they should really do something about that!


cheers,

bavarian
