Xwindows never works
So every once and a while I try to install Linux on my computer, but Xwindows never works. I get frustrated and just give up. I can never seem to find a set of options in the configuration that works. I have a third party Radeon 8500 card, but there is no option to select for any sort of Radeon 8500 card in the configuration. I am installing Debian, but I have aslo tried RedHat without any luck. Can anyone help me break the cycle so I can finally use Linux on my machine?
