RIVA TNT2 advice


hi,

if u have a nvidia video card don't use the default x drivers , go to www.nvidia.com and pick up their drivers. it's fairly easy to install via rpm or tar files. the nvidia drivers give blazing performance while the default drivers fumble along. hope this is of some use.

regards

a md5 sum is a checksum - it's just a method of confirming that nothing was changed, lost, or corrupted during download - if you don't know what it is, then you don't need to bother with it, and can probably happily ignore it for the rest of your natural life.
