My video card is:
NVIDIA GeForce 4 MX 440

My monitor is 17" LCD:
BNQ BENQ FP 731

Mobo is Gigabyte P4 Titan 667.
CPU: Pentium 4 - 2.4 GHz. (32 bit)

(My next PC will be an Athlon). I have some "real" work to do, so I fell back to SuSE 10.0, which purrs along without a hitch. The monitor happily displays 1280x1024 pixels with 24 bit colours.

I regret to say, that my sad experience is that suse 10.1 is excellent for experimenting with the OS. It is clear enough that the system is in a state of transition. Whilst I do enjoy fiddling with it, I resent not being able to easily configure the NVIDIA driver. The tiny-nvidia-installer had disappointed me once again.

Nice to hear that some people have had success - I salute you all!
